Social Studies

This week we will be learning about The Great Depression. Students will read their newspapers, do the crossword and the flowchart to help students understand what events that led to the Depression as well as what happened during it. Students will be learning how families were affected and the repercussions that the country faced. Students will then take a 10 question quiz on Friday.


This week students will continue planning their dream vacation. Students have picked 3 places they want to research and are learning how to stick to their budget to make their trip happen! Students will decide which of the 3 trips they would actually want to take and make a presentation on all the costs and why they would like to take this trip with the people they chose to go on a vacation with! This will be done during class.


This week in reading we will be starting our unit on Research Processes. Students will be learning about the different ways to gather information both from books and the internet. We will also be learning how to cite these sources and paraphrase instead of plagiarize. This will be a great tool to have with them in the future. Finally we will have a spelling test and a comprehension test on Friday!


**We will be having a vocabulary test on Wednesday (April 5th) over the Carbon cycle and metamorphosis!

**In science this week we will be reviewing our Unit 9,10 and 11 material for our test on Friday (both content and vocabulary (adaptations and learned and inherited traits))!

We will be looking back at ecosystems, food chains/webs, metamorphosis, the carbon cycle, adaptations and learned behaviors/inherited traits! This is all in their science notebooks so they can look back at it throughout the week!
