Humanities: Students selected their next Amazing Race Region and began learning about the land, people and history of that place. We also began our poetry projects. Students will include a minimum of 7 poems in a book they will publish digitally. This week students will complete the region roadblock, finish their poetry, and start our next class novel study. Students who wish to read this book using the audiobook should plan on keeping a set of headphones at school.
Math: Last week we worked on rotational geometry by creating tessellations which demonstrated transformations (translations, rotations and reflections). Check SeeSaw for a finished view of this artwork. This week we will begin to look at fractions by comparing and ordering them.
Science: We continue to build our knowledge of simple circuits by constructing parallel and series circuits. These will be important knowledge and skills to have as one of the Amazing Race detours will be to invent and build an electrical device that makes life easier for a settler on the Interior Plains.
