Math: We practiced extended multiplication facts today. Extended facts are just basic facts multiplied by 10, 100, 1000,  or so on. For example, to multiply 8 * 300, just multiply 8 * 3 and then add two zeroes to the answer. Homework is to complete Journal P5-2.

Science: We started to learn that volume is the measure of space that matter takes up. One way to measure volume is with a graduated cylinder.

Social Studies: Students completed a district economics test today.
