5th Grade Class- Mr. Weber
Social Studies- we wrapped up our unit on The Civil Rights Unit and each student made a poster about one of the most important events during this time period! I am so proud of the effort they put into remembering and honoring these heroes who fought for equality!
Science- The students are in the process of completing a Mystery Science lesson during their station time. They are learning about the reason why we have different seasons. [hint- the earth is tilted on its axis :)]
Math- We are preparing for PARCC testing this week!
we have been doing practice test questions and we played Jeopardy and students worked together to demonstrate their skills!
Reading- We are currently Reading The Watsons go to Birmingham. The students are learning about the Watson family and their journey to Alabama during segregation and the Civil Rights Movement.
Also, we recently learned about the differences between continents and countries. We decided to focus on Africa as our specific focus and we learned about African Music! Each student got a chance to create their own model version of a Kalimba, which is an African finger piano.
Check with your child for any missing work. They can still get credit for it. It's not too late.
Students can still correct any math homework assigned and turn it in to get those points back. They have until the end of 4th quarter. To receive credit they must show their work :)
