This week we continue to focus on the essential question: How do traditions connect people? Students have read 2 Native American historical fiction narratives. As we read each text, students have used the skill of analyzing theme to further understand each text.
I am so very proud of each student's progress in math so far this year. Students have started a new unit on measurement and converting between units of measurement. This week we will focus on the customary system and how we use this as a means to measure length, weight, and liquid volumes.
Students have finished the energy conversion unit and have started a new unit looking at how computer and human inputs and outputs are similar. This week students will look at how computers receive data and how they output information using the binary system of 0s and 1s.
We will work on week 2 of our heritage unit. Students will need to have their research on their ancestor's country of origin completed by the end of this week in order to stay on track with completing their project by the last full week of May. If students have lost their Heritage Museum packet, please have the students use the document I have attached to the bottom of this post.
1. Students are to convert 7 pounds into tons.
2. Identify 2 facts learned during the research of an ancestor's country of origin.
