MATH: Addition & subtraction strategies. Students will be able to apply patterns they see in number systems.

SCIENCE: Over the next few weeks, students will be working to answer the question: How can we teach students about the Earth’s features and resources? Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:

· recording detailed observations of the Earth’s surface and features

· describing and comparing the physical properties of rocks

· describing natural sources of water

· communicating information about the Earth’s surface and its features

· working collaboratively to create a presentation showing the Earth’s features and resources

We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. You can support your child’s learning by talking with your child about this unit and encouraging her/him to ask questions and think hard.

We are looking forward to our Earth Experts embarking on their journey of learning!
