Science and Health:

Pebbles, Sand, and Silt

Students investigate a mixture of different-sized river rocks as a phenomenon. They separate the rocks using a series of three screens to identify five sizes of rocks: large pebbles, small pebbles, large gravel, small gravel, and sand. They add water to a vial of sand to discover silt and clay. Students learn how sand is formed and compare slow landform changes of weathering and erosion to rapid landform changes due to volcanic eruptions.

Insects and Plants

The class observes painted lady larvae grow, pupate, and emerge as adult butterflies.

  • Health: Healthy Foods

This week we are learning about colors and lines.


Your students should practice typing skills daily. (Computer Wise Handout is in homework folder)

Students need to access Typing Tutor to develop keyboarding skills. If they practice at home, please make sure they follow the lighted fingers displayed on typing tutor, and that they rest their fingers on the home row keys. It's similar to learning to play the piano.
