Math

  • Students have completed our first unit on Finding Volume!

  • We are currently working on our second unit: Fractions and Quotients and Fraction Multiplication. Students will discover how fractions and division are related, and will discover strategies to multiply when fractions are involved.

Science

  • Our first science unit challenges students to develop a strong understanding of the biotic and abiotic factors in ecosystems and to evaluate the health of ecosystems throughout the world. This is done through the lens of the rare golden jellyfish and it's unique ecosystem!

  • Make sure to ask your child to tell you all about these creatures!

  • Currently we are gathering evidence about the mysterious disappearance of the English colonists at the Roanoke settlement, and we will be supporting the most likely theories with evidence very soon!

Science

  • Our first science unit on Weather and Climate focuses not only on identifying what weather and climate are, but on recognizing the impact that extreme weather and varying climates have on people throughout the world.

Social Studies

  • We have begun our year in social studies by learning about the American Industrial Revolution. Students not only discover inventions and advances in the areas of machinery, transportation, communication, and energy, but learn about the resulting benefits and challenges to those living during that time period.
