Welcome Back 5C Community!
How many G5 students can fit inside a square meter? That was one of several inquiries 5C explored this week. Enjoy the visual look at other activities that we engaged in to learn about energy, measure areas, reflect on books and assess our narrative stories.
Introducing our new unit on energy, we literally began the week without electricity to see how much we rely on it. After that, we explored circuits and played a memory game to learn terminology and the definitions of words like conductors and insulators.
After discussing the current world events in Australia and Iran, we used math to understand how many people can fit in a specific space and how much land was destroyed. We then used that information to determine if the entire student body could fit inside our classroom.
In book club groups, students shared their views on the books they read over the winter vacation. Then they presented a summary and the social messages found in the books with the rest of the class.
The stories that students wrote before the break were returned with teacher feedback. After reviewing their grades, students shared their stories with classmates and wrote their own reflections.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and please take a minute to review the following upcoming events:
