Week of March 27- April 7
Math:We are working on Measurement. Here are the SOLS:
Students will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to:
5.8a Find perimeter, area, and volume in standard units of measure.
5.8b Differentiate among perimeter, area, and volume and identify
whether the application of the concept of perimeter, area, or volume
is appropriate for a given situation.
5.8c Identify equivalent measurements within the metric system.
5.8d Estimate and then measure to solve problems, using U.S. Customary
and metric units.
5.8e Choose an appropriate unit of measure for a given situation involving
measurement using U.S. Customary and metric units.
5.10 The student will determine an amount of elapsed time in hours
and minutes within a 24-hour period.
Language Arts: We are Reviewing figurative language, main idea, cause and effect, inferences, story elements, author's use of language, and other previously taught SOLs
Earth Patterns, Cycles, and Change
5.7 The student will investigate and understand how the Earth’s surface is constantly changing. Key concepts include
b. Earth history and fossil evidence;
e. weathering and erosion; and
f. human impact.
Geography: We are working on an end of unit Bloom Ball Project instead of a test on the Midwest region. We will use our higher level thinking skills to compare and contrast the Midwest region to other regions we have studied.
We have started our final unit on the Southwest/West regions of the
of the United States.
We have started our Wax Museum Project. Please refer to the timeline sent home to stick to the due dates.
