Math Activities: Students will work in chapter 9. They will be using strategies to solve word problems with all 4 operations. They will take an assessment on Friday with word problems. We will also complete a 5 minute multiplication speed drill every Friday.


Math Learning Targets: Students will focus on solving expressions and word problems with variables when the value is given. We will also solve two-step word problems using logical reasoning.

Please practice misapplication facts daily. Students need to be fluent in these facts by the end of the year.

IXL: Q.6, O.1-6

Science Learning Targets:  SC.3.P.10.2SC.3

.P.10.Students will recognize that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change. 

 Science Learning Activities: Students will be investigating and describing how energy can cause motion, such as a hairdryer, windmill. Or Jack-in-the Box. Students will also be investigating how energy has the ability to create change, like melting ice or cooking food. Finally, they will be identifying what source of energy caused the change. They will be doing hands on activities exploring heat energy and friction.

Science Vocabulary:

Light energy- energy that can be seen. Light energy can move through space.

Mechanical energy- energy of motion: potential (stored energy) and kinetic (motion)

Sound energy- energy made be vibration

Thermal energy- energy of heat

Electrical energy- energy that usually flows through wires, when electrons move from one place to another.
