This Week We Are Learning:
Math: This week we are in our last unit of math: Converting measurement and financial literacy. In this unit, students will be able to solve problems by calculating conversions within a measurement system, customary or metric. Students will not need to memorize conversion values but will know how to use a chart to convert units. And then we’re talking about money! In financial literacy, students will be able to define income tax, payroll tax, sales tax, and property tax, explain the difference between gross income and net income, describe actions that might be taken to balance a budget when expenses exceed income, and balance a simple budget.
Science: Today we wrapped up our unit on food webs and food chains and changes to the environment and this week we will begin our new unit on Structures and Functions; Inherited Traits and Learned Behaviors; Metamorphosis. We will identify organisms’ structures and behaviors that help them survive within their environments. We will look at different examples of animals and plants and see how their structures help them live and survive in a particular environment.
