Today your child received a direction sheet for our “Changes in Ecosystems” Project. Please visit the “Projects” page of this blog to find a copy of the direction sheet.
This week in science, our “little investigators” created a model to determine how the ocean gets salty. Check out the pictures below of all the fun we had in our lab!
Curious to learn the answer to our investigative question? Ask your child how the ocean gets salty. I am sure they will blow your mind with their response!
This week, our “little readers” read another non-fiction text. This time, they read a biography titled, “Klondike Kate.”
Not only did our reader’s learn about the characteristics that define a biography, but they also practiced, once again, the skills of summarizing and paraphrasing. Through the use of “Klondike Kate” and an anchor chart on “How to Find the Main Idea,” our fifth graders were able to summarize and paraphrase various texts.
