Social Studies with Ms. Textor

Science with Mrs. Lee
Scientists completed their week of Earth Processes with a lab on soil conservation. They will continue their study of the Earth next week with a mock earthquake, volcanic eruptions, and a final rock study. Once the labs are complete, students will review the scientific method in preparation for the fall. English / Language Arts The school year will end with a Moral Focus study and review of the writing process. Students will work on essays, letters, and expanding initial thoughts with details.

Students have wrapped up their time learning about the economy and economics this week by researching the economic status of countries we have discussed over the year. After researching, we took our findings and compared it to the United States economy to discuss how different countries use their economics to help develop their own country. With one last full week of school left (yikes!), the class will be working on two fun projects. The first will be a letter students will write to take a look back on the year and reflect over what they have learned. This letter will let the kids talk about what they liked the most and what they wish they could learn more about. The last piece that students will be doing is our 'ROUND THE WORLD POTLUCK!'. We have traveled far over the year from Greece, Rome, Medieval Europe and Latin America. It's time to put those wonderful countries to use with food! The classes will be choosing what country they would like to bring a dish in and on Thursday we will have a social studies potluck where the students will bring in their food with a card describing what the food is and what country it is coming from. I can't wait for the classes to sample all of the delicious food that will be brought to school!

Books not turned in by Friday June 8th will be assumed lost and assessed a replacement fee.
