Math, Science, and Social Studies
Week of 9/18/17 - 9/22/17
Math: Students will begin learning about algebraic properties this week in their new foldable/notebook for Topic 2: Equivalent Expressions. We will discuss and practice the identity and zero property in lesson 2-1 and begin lesson 2-2 on communities properties. Students will continue their learning in small groups on these skills and other review/spiraling math skills.
Students will also take their AimsWeb test on Tuesday this week.
*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, and others.
Science: We will finish up our study of density and physical & chemical properties and students will take a quiz over these concepts. We will then continue our learning of matter with how matter can change states and the process of the molecules as they change states.
Social Studies: Students will work in groups this week to create their own civilizations. We have explored what it takes with the very first civilizations in history to survive, key aspects of those civilizations, and how they use their land, so students will be able to construct civilizations and explain how theirs would work.
