Math: Understanding Time and Temperature

Literacy: Synthesis During/After Reading


Science: Weather

We continued to focus this week was learning about how we can model elapsed time using dials and number lines to keep track of when and how long events took place. We also introduced and created our own thermometer. With it we created our own class unit "heatmons" and measured the temperature of the classroom as our 0 temperature. We found body temperature as to be 2.5 heatmons. We then discussed other standard units of measure like Kelvin, Celsius, and Fahrenheit. 

Next week we will continue to practice reading a variety of scales and assess what we know.

We continued research on our biographies. We have begun to develop categories to write about and continue to research and answer our questions that come up as we write.

Projects to finish:
We are revising and editing "I Am From" poems and getting ready to publish them as videos.

Finding resources and deciding who we want to research. We are working on using biographies to help us in our Synthesis during and after reading.

We developed our understanding of how average highs and lows, along with amount of precipitation, can lead to a climate. We also create a color coded world map that has shown us a pattern of how latitude on the Earth can effect our climate.

We are collecting multiple data points to help us predict what is happening with the Weather. We are learning about how temperature and pressure effect what type of weather we may experience.
