Week 6! We are working on our new inquiry projects, exchanging letters with different countries, and learned about the skill of test taking!
Inquiry (Social Studies, Science): Through this inquiry, students learned about the finite resources we have. They are now making observations and research on ways to help to preserve these finite resources for the future of our planet. They experienced what it was like with no electricity, and spent some time creating their own inventions to conserve energy.
Language Arts: Students got back to poetry this week. We used more examples from our mentor text, Where the Sidewalk Ends to brainstorm ideas for our poetry. We also looked at how music uses the same elements as poetry for its lyrics!
Math: This week we did a review of the year in math. We did a variety of exercises and activities to review our math skills.
Next week: We will begin the going further stage of our inquiry projects, take our Cambridge examinations, and finish up our pen pal letters, and final poems!
Have a fantastic weekend,
