Humanities: Before the break we wrapped up the work on the Arctic region roadblock and detours. This week, students worked on the Pitstop for this region in humanities class. We will also started a short unit on poetry and continue learning about figurative language and how authors use it to enhance their writing. We also enjoyed a field trip to the Glenbow Museum that reinforced our classroom learning about regions and their impact on everyday life.
Math: In math this week we learned about geometrical transformations such as translations, reflections and rotations. We also took a bit of a side tangent and reviewed how to tell time on an analog clock. This will help us out when we get to our work on fractions. If you have an analog clock at home, feel free to quiz your child! We will continue with geometry next week exploring tessellations and then will be moving on to fractions the following week.
Science: In science this week we continued to look electricity and electrical circuits. We learned how electrons flow in a circuit as well as how to draw circuit diagrams using the correct symbols. Next week we will explore series and parallel circuits.
As always, let us know if you have any questions or concerns! Have a great weekend,
