Class activities for Monday, May 22

Health: We continued our discussion of how drugs can be illegal and unhealthy. This week’s Internet Task also focuses on researching drugs and health.

Language Arts: Today we learned that some poems are written using a metaphor, such as comparing school to a pinball game, or home to a circus.

The last piece of writing will be due June 2 and will be a collection of poems.

Spelling: None due to Health.

The Level Four Core Word list is an option for continued practice.

Math: We practiced dividing polygons into sections and then naming fractional parts of the polygons. Homework is to complete Math Boxes 7.3, boxes 1,3,4, and 6.

Science: We did an activity to look at how much of the earth is covered with water. Students colored squares on a grid of earth, representing water squares with a blue color, and land squares with green. Homework is to finish coloring the squares on the grid, and to count total blue and green squares. Also, students were asked to name each of the seven continents. 

Social Studies: None due to Essential Skills testing.
