In the Classroom . . .
Language Arts - We will continue our focus on characteristics of non-fiction text, as well as text structure. Knowing the structure of a text helps with comprehension! We will also be starting to read the novel The Cay by Theodore Taylor. The story takes place in the Caribbean during WWII. Ask your child which cay they would like to visit for our next field trip! :)
Science - We are finishing up our investigation of different theories of the origin of the universe by using critical thinking and citing evidence to either agree or disagree with a theory. It has lead to some very good discussions and a lot more questions than answers! There will be a post test on chapter 2 from our textbook on Thursday, March 6. Students were given a study guide that is posted in Schoology.
Social Studies - We are continuing our study of WWII. Our focus will be the background and causes of the war, as well as Germany's role in WWII.
