What is happening in Mathematics, Science, and Hisory this week?
Happy Sunday to you all! Hard to believe that we have only a little less than 4 weeks before we take off for Jekyll Island! Preparations have been completed for our class selections, and reservations have been made for the Georgia Sea Turtle Center! Very exciting! Please let me know if you have any questions about this tremendous trip.
Here is what your students will be doing in Science, Mathematics, and History this week:
Science: Students will continue to build a food chain and then a food web as they discover how each consumer and producer impact the ecosystem. There will be no quizzes this week.👍
Mathematics: We are having some fun with measurement and will be moving on to weight, capacity, and the metric system during the week. There may be a quiz at some point.
History: Students will finish the sloppy copy of their papers this week and begin typing them in the computer lab. Each class will have 2 opportunities to work in the computer lab each week so I am hopeful that papers can be completed on time. If not, then we will use flash drives to copy work done at school on the HP laptops so that they can work at home. Hopefully, we won’t need to do that! Also, reference notes for the bibliography have been taken so library books can be returned anytime. Thank you very much for supporting your student in this way! The African Kingdoms unit is going well, and students have read the first 3 lessons and will be halfway finished with the chapter this week. They are doing this unit as a homework project to familiarize themselves with African history.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Hope your weekend has been fun and productive! I will see your children in the morning!
