We will continue with our final unit of study, Informational Research-Based Project. The children will come to understand that research writing is based on information gathered from sources other than the writer's own imagination or experience. They will learn that researchers use a variety of sources and strategies to gather and record information and that researchers organize notes to allow them to categorize information.
We will begin our next chapter, Perimeter and Area. The students will learn how to find perimeter, measure area, use area to compare rectangles with the same perimeter, and use perimeter to compare rectangles with the same area.
We will continue our study of Economics. Questions we will strive to answer include: How do communities and individuals use capital and human resources to satisfy their needs? and How do incentives, values, and traditions influence economic decisions?
We will continue our study of Traits . Overall, the children will learn that plant and animal traits contribute to their well-being. They will work to describe how different organisms vary in how they look and function due to different inherited information.
*In Health, the children will be learning about tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.
Although we are trying to foster independence in the children, please be sure to check your child's backpack and folder daily in order to keep abreast of his/her studies.
Please send in tissues and wipes if you are able!
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions/concerns, and thank you for guiding your child on his/her educational journey!
