Welcome back!! Can you believe we are officially on the downhill to the end of the school year?! But before we get ahead of ourselves, we still have a lot of learning to do before testing!
Here’s what we are learning this week:

Obtain, evaluate, & communicate information about the ways heat energy is transferred & measured.
a. Ask questions to identify sources of heat energy.
b. Plan & carry out an investigation to gather data using thermometers to produce tables & charts that illustrate the effect of sunlight on various objects (Clarification statement: The use of both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales is expected.)
c. Use tools & every day materials to design & construct a device/ structure that will increase/ decrease the warming effects of sunlight on various materials.
Math: Students will classify shapes based on their attributes. Here is a website students can also use for extra practice for each standard http://www.free-test-online.com/ccss/grade3/grade3_ccss.html
