This week in Math students applied adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers to identify patterns, the commutative and associative property, and algebraically to find a missing amount in a word problem when a total was given along with 2 amounts. The Birthday Bash Project was collected on Wednesday. I really look forward to grading them and enjoying the creativity of our students.
This week in Science students completed their final week of filling out their Moon Calendar. Students learned factual information about Neptune and Pluto. We checked out articles on Sciencedaily.com. Students responded to comprehension questions regarding the inner and outer planets and then calculated their weight on some other planets using a given formula. Students then enjoyed this week's meteor sighting in the mid-west.
Get ready for more snow!
