Science-They are working on a scope on plant and animal parts in STEMscopes. They have examined seeds from various fruits and vegetables and will investigate how plants get the water they need. They have also completed a venn diagram comparing and contrasting two different birds after designing their own bird and explaining the purpose of the feet, beak, body, and color.
Math—Fifth grade just completed their chapter on coordinate planes. They have learned about quadrants, ordered pairs, how to plot ordered pairs. They have worked with function tables, graphs, and equations and have tested over the chapter. We will begin with a review of geometry after Spring Break.
Science—They have begun their scope, Matter and Energy in Plants in STEMscopes. They are charting the growth of seeds that have air and water and have completed a comic strip with captions about plants and what they need to grow. They studied various ways plants can be reproduced and have started a project to grow plants hydroponically. We are happy to announce that we do have plants sprouting!
Science—The sixth graders are working on their new scope, The Geologic History of Earth, in STEMscopes. They have completed a visual vocabulary presentation and have worked with a scale of the geologic history of the earth.
