Unit of Inquiry
This week we began working on creating and designing our structures for the summative assessment. Once the students are finished designing their structure of choice, they have the option of constructing it in class providing they bring the necessary materials to build it from home. In conjunction with this, we have been continuing our research on a tool or material used in construction. Many of the students have found it challenging to create visual presentations that are to scale. They have been using various measurement tools to find out just how high is 5 meters, for example. They are then working to represent that on paper. As the structures are taking shape we are amazed at the designs forming.
P.E. is on Wednesday and Thursday. Students should always remember their hats and a change of clothes on these days. They are also encouraged to bring and use non-aerosol deodorant.
We are your 5th Grade Teachers
