Reading and Writing: We will continue to develop our non-fiction research skills and informational writing skills. Students are in research clubs about natural disasters. In writing 3A writers will look to mentor authors and text to inquire how to write a powerful introduction. In reading 3A readers will learn about how to organize their research into subsections for a better flow.
Math: Data reveals patterns. Students will learn how representing data through maps makes it easier to reveal patterns and draw conclusions. Please see attachment below.
Unit of Inquiry: Communities support each other in times of need. Students will inquire about, ‘How do (natural events, earthquake, volcanic eruption) affect the environment?’ On Friday we will take a field trip to the park to observe communities and support structures in place in our own city. If you have not returned the permission slip please do so as soon as possible.
