The students applied their reading skills of comparing and contrasting today as we learned about the layers of the Amazon Rainforest. The students watched a video that gave details on the life and animals one would experience if they were to journey the rainforest.
We began looking at tenths and hundredths today by comparing fraction visuals of tenths and hundredths. The students needed to use their understanding of fractions of a whole to convert tenths to hundredths and visa-versa. We will use this skill tomorrow to add tenths and hundredths and convert this to decimals.
Many students were able to use their scheme with the Lewis and Clark Caverns today as we learned about the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. It is so much fun to see the students come alive as they learn about areas of the Southwest and research their wonderings. The assignment notebook code is for the students to identify what they researched today in regards to the Carlsbad Caverns. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
Remember: There is no school on Friday. :)
