Here’s what we are learning this week:
Reading: Students will learn how to do the following:
- Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the physical attributes of rocks and soils.
- Analyze data to classify rocks by their physical attributes using simple tests
Math: Students will take all strategies they have learned to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems, and solve 2 step word problems involving these four operations. Here’s an example of a word problem:
Joe had 4 packages of bubblegum. Each package had 8 sticks. He shared them with his friends. At the end of the day, he had 10 pieces left. How many sticks were chewed?
Writing: Students will work on using passages to write narrative, information, and opinion pieces. This week will integrate our learning on Rocks and write an informational constructed response.
Transdisciplinary Theme: How the World Works
Central Idea: Cycles create environmental changes.
