WEEK 5: April 27-May 1


Mrs. McMullen’s Email: Mcmullenm@ivyhawnschool.org or mdmcmull@volusia.k12.fl.us (for office 365)

**I will make myself available for students and parents via Email, Phone, Microsoft Teams or Remind from 8:00 am-3:00 pm M-F. After 3:00 pm, question may not be answered until the following day.**

STUDENTS: The quickest way to contact me is through Microsoft Teams chat on office 365 through vPortal. I will stay logged in throughout the day for you to reach me, and I will also schedule set times for our whole class to  meet to touch base.

I will also post instructional videos in Teams by request, so if you still don’t understand something, message me on Teams and I’ll do a quick recording to help you, or you can call me.

Science Fair Project 2019-2020 Grading Rubric



MAFS.5.G.2 Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.
MAFS.5.G.2.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. 
MAFS.5.G.2.4 Classify and organize two-dimensional figures into Venn diagrams based on the attributes of the figures.


Students will:

  • categorize two-dimensional figures (i.e., triangle, quadrilateral, rectangle, square, rhombus, trapezoid) according to their defined attributes.
    NOTE: Geometric (defining) attributes include number and properties of sides (i.e., parallel, perpendicular, congruent) and number and properties of angles (i.e., type of angle, measurement of angle, congruency of angles).

  • relate certain categories of two-dimensional figures as subcategories of other categories
    E.g., rectangles are a subcategory of parallelograms because they are both quadrilaterals with two pairs of sides that are parallel and congruent, therefore all rectangles are also parallelograms.

  • explain that the attributes belonging to one category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category.
    E.g., Squares are a subcategory of rectangles, therefore if rectangles have four right angles and two pairs of sides that are parallel and congruent, it can be inferred that squares have four right angles and two pairs of sides that are parallel and congruent.

  • classify two-dimensional figures (i.e., triangle, quadrilateral, rectangle, square, rhombus, trapezoid) based on defining attributes.

  • organize two-dimensional figures into a Venn diagram based on defining attributes.


Monday: iReady

  • Complete 1 FULL iReady lesson & quiz – if you finish before 30 minutes, please begin another one

Tuesday: Venn Diagrams in Math

Wednesday: Angles

  • Print or save the following notes: Types of Angles Notes
  • Watch the following video: Angles Song
  • Padlet Directions: Look all around your house (or outside your house) to find pictures of different types of angles. You must post at least one of each type of angle (obtuse, acute, right, and straight) and then rate and comment on someone else’s picture. Be creative and REMEMBER to be kind in your comments. The top THREE most creative pictures (based on votes) will receive a prize, so be sure to put your name in the title!

Thursday: Triangles

Friday: Finish up Geometry

  • Study all of your geometry notes from the last two weeks.
  • Nearpod: Geometry Formative Assessment Code – TGPQJ

SC.5.N.1.1 Define a problem, use appropriate reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and carry out scientific investigations of various types such as: systematic observations, experiments requiring the identifications of variables, collecting and organizing data, interpreting data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.


Students will:

    • generate testable questions that will generate observable and measurable data.
    • formulate a testable hypothesis based on information gathered from research.
    • design a scientific investigation individually or in teams through a variety of methods
    • use scientific tools during investigations to observe and measure physical properties.
    • explain that all conditions in an experiment outside the manipulated variable must be controlled or kept the same (ensure that the results of an experiment can be explained ONLY by the variable being tested and not by some other factor).
    • evaluate another’s written procedure or experimental setup.
    • collect and record observable and measurable data in science notebooks.
    • organize data in appropriate forms of record keeping (e.g., charts, tables, graphs).
    • interpret and analyze data that has been collected.
    • generate appropriate explanations based on evidence gathered (e.g., “My hypothesis was/was not supported by the evidence because…” or “The data gathered during my experiment did/did not support my hypothesis because…”).
    • apply explanations to real world connections (application).
