MATH

STANDARDS:

MAFS.5.NBT.2 Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.
MAFS.5.NBT.2.5 Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. 
MAFS.5.NBT.2.6 Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division.

ASSIGNMENTS & PRACTICE:

Monday: 

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

Tuesday:

  • You will have all week to finish the project, but I would suggest sticking with one attraction per day to pace yourself
  • The document will save to your name automatically as you edit it in Office 365 (so you don’t need to email me anything, I will see your edits live).
  • THIS WILL BE YOUR GRADE FOR THE WEEK

Wednesday:

  • Staycation Project – Research Day 2

Thursday: 

  • Staycation Project – Research Day 3

Friday:

  • Staycation Project – Research Day 4
  • Project DUE for a formative grade
  • The document will save to your name automatically as you edit it in Office 365 (so you don’t need to email me anything, I will see your edits live).

SCIENCE

STANDARDS:

SC.5.N.2.1 Recognize and explain that science is grounded in empirical observations that are testable; explanation must always be linked with evidence.
SC.5.N.2.2 Recognize and explain that when scientific investigations are carried out, the evidence produced by those investigations should be replicable by others.
SC.5.N.1.6 Recognize and explain the difference between personal opinion/interpretation and verified observation.
SC.5.N.1.5 Recognize and explain that authentic scientific investigation frequently does not parallel the steps of “the scientific method.”
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 identification of variables, collecting and organizing data, interpreting data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.

LEARNING TARGETS:

Students will:

    • Research a scientist and explain their influence on science and other pertinent information as it relates to science/the scientific method.

ASSIGNMENTS & PRACTICE:

Monday:

  • Famous Scientist Project: This is your formative assessment this week! This is your only assignment this week, so your presentation and research should be representative of a minimum of 2.5 hours worth of work (30 minutes a day). Use your time wisely! 
  • PROJECTS MUST BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS!
  • Plagiarism=no grade
  • Plagiarism means taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own (AKA copy and paste!)
  • Famous Scientist Project Instructions
  • Rubric for Famous Scientist Project
  • **SPECIAL NOTE: 1 point on the rubric is for turning it in ON TIME (Friday by 3:00 pm)**
  • Social Media Page Template (Optional)

Tuesday: 

  • Famous Scientist Project (work for 30 minutes)

Wednesday:

  • Famous Scientist Project (work for 30 minutes)

Thursday:

  • Famous Scientist Project (work for 30 minutes)

Friday: 

  • PROJECT DUE FOR A FORMATIVE GRADE BY TODAY @ 3:00 PM
  • -1 point for each day your project is late
