This week we will be:

Reading: We continue reading Ramona Quimby. This week we read chapter 4 and 5.

Math: We begin a new chapter on area and perimeter. This week we learn how to measure the perimeter of different shapes.

Religion: We will learn about the different Titles of Mary. Students will illustrate their own picture of Mary.

 

Science:  Students experiment with “Sheep on a Jeep”, a book about force and motion we read last week.  They roll sheep taped to cars down ramps to determine how ramp height affects motion.  During this unit, they will complete hand-on experiments to learn properties of force and motion and then apply this to our last engineering design project, making a contraption to save the sheep once they roll off a cliff!

 

Language Arts: We use our language arts time to work on our book reports.

 

Social Studies: Students continue to do reasearch for the State in the Box Project.
