Today marks the end of Week 3 of Virtual Learning, I am so proud of all the hard work you all are putting into your Target assignments! Keep it up! 🙂
Hope you enjoy your Spring Break with your family!
See you again the week of April 13th!
Here are Week 3 of Virtual Learning Activities for Target:
Math: Dividing Integers Worksheet (10-15 minutes) Remember your integer rules – same signs positive different signs negative. I attached an integer rules sheet in case you needed a refresher on the rules. 😊
STEM: Create a Mars Colony – we will work on this for 2 weeks, spend about 1 and a half hours on it each week, this week and the Thursday after Spring Break. Ms. Garvin created a video about this project if you want to watch it, here’s a link to her blog: https://vaughanrockets.typepad.com/christy_garvin/2020/04/garvins-survival-and-space-academy-5th-grade-week-of-march-30th.html Scroll down to about midway and you will see the video, just click on it. Also, I have attached an interesting article on an experiment that was created to simulate living on Mars here – read the article you don’t need to answer the questions, but you may want to think about them as you create your colony.
3 parts of project:
1) Create your colony- Remember the following:
2) Label everything in your colony
3) Type a 1 page introduction to your colony. What are its best features? Why would people need to live there? What are the structures in your colony?
4) Don’t for get to take pictures so you can upload the pictures and colony introduction to your Teams account the week after spring break.
