What's New in Miss Duquette's Math, Science and Social Studies Room
(November, 2017)





 In Fifth Grade...


 In Sixth Grade...
 
 
Math

Science 

Social Studies 
 
We have completed our first two chapters on Numbers to 10,000 and Whole Number Multiplication and Division!
Chapter 3 on adding and subtracting with fractions and mixed numbers was a success!  We are into chapter 4, where we are learning to multiply and divide with fractions!
 

Our first science unit of the year about the Moon has been completed!  On to social studies

To keep investigating the moon, you can continue to check out this website!

 
Our first social studies unit has begun, and students have completed research to try and solve the Mystery of Roanoke!  
 Check out their theories on the board outside our classroom!

We will now move on to study other early settlements, such as Jamestown and Plymouth.

  
 
Math

Science 

Social Studies 
 
This year, we have completed units on positive and negative numbers as well was fraction and decimal operations. Students are currently working to extend their understanding of ratios, which began last year.  They will then move on to exploring rates, a special kind of ratio.

 

Our first science unit of the year on ecosystems has concluded!  We are back to social studies!

 
Students are currently working on creating Heritage Albums for our Industry and Immigration unit in social studies!  Groups of three students have been assigned a county and will be working to create an album depicting what it might have been like for an immigrant from that country to travel to the United States in the time frame of 1850-1910.  Stay tuned for information on the students' Ellis Island Simulation, which they will conclude the unit with!





Homework assigned during the week is meant to reinforce topics learned during class.  Homework for both fifth and sixth graders should take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to complete each night, all subjects included.
 
Special projects in science and social studies will be assigned in each unit to help students show their understanding of new concepts.  All projects will be accompanied by a scoring rubric and will count as a test grade.
