What's Happening This Week in:

Science: Students are learning about states of matter and how particles can change from one state of matter to another.

Math: Students have a good foundation of ratios and will continue to apply them for the next set of problems involving real world concepts with equivalent ratios.  We will be using other models such as ratio tables and double number lines to solve problems.

Math (La Fronza):  Students will continue to investigate equivalent ratios.  
Social Studies:

Language Arts:  Students will continue to work on annotating text and comparing author purpose.  In addition, students will work on lit circles and the appropriate focus activity for each meeting.

Join us for complimentary family fun, shows and learning at DuPage Area STEM Expo (formerly known as DuPage Area Engineers Week) for an interactive exploration into science, technology, engineering and math. The event is free and open to the public with over 50 displays, presentations, projects and activities for school age children, grades K – 12.

The DuPage Area STEM Expo, in conjunction with national Engineers Week, is a specialized event designed to promote learning and the awareness of opportunities provided among STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.
SOME THINGS TO DO
AT THE EXPO
  • Explore the explosive power of Nitrogen and Cryogenics at the infamous Mr. Freeze show
  • See robots from the Chicago Area Robotics Group
  • Visit a simulated earthquake table and construct an "earthquake resistant" LEGO® skyscraper
  • NEW! Magical Mystery Microbes- look at organisms through a microscope courtesy of Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
  • Extinguish a simulated fire and experience a hands-on modern fire detection and alarm simulation
  • Construct structures, build cars, and learn engineering principles from Zoom into Engineering
  • Learn what keeps airplanes flying from the ASME
  • Have a shocking and hair raising experience with the IEEE-static electricity generator
  • And more for hands-on STEM exploration activities for children
