Week of 5/21/18 - 5/25/18

 

Math:  Students will be finishing up Topic 13 this week about Area of different polygons.  We will then move on to Topic 14: Surface Area & Volume.  We are going through these lessons quickly and not in their entirety.  Some of these lessons should be review and the purpose is to expose the students to the material.   

*We also begin or end our day with a Bell Ringer.  These are little exercises that touch on basic, review, or sometime new math concepts.  Usually this practice has nothing to do with the current topic we are working on, but is good to keep sharp on various math skills and spiraling activities that help with different parts of math.  Some the activities we will do are: Minute Math, PARRCC practice, multiplication/division practice, prodigy, IXL, reflex math, and others.   

Science:  Students will finish up the final touches on their cruisers this week in order to compete against other classes' cruisers!  Students have to get their drive mechanism (string) and weight (pennies) to get work together to move the cruiser.  If teams have any extra time they can decorate their cruiser.  

Social Studies:  (We will be taking a break from social studies as we build our Gravity Cruisers in science.  Next week (hopefully weather permitting) we will conclude our studies of ancient Greece by competing in our own Olympics!
