Wow! March and April was so much fun! We had a very spirited Pep Rally and it was great to see everyone at the Beaufort Twilight Run!
As you know "Adaptation" is our Big Idea for the year. This last trimester our Enduring Understanding is "Actions have Consequences." Some of our probing questions have been "How does progress affect life?", "How do actions affect consequences?"
In Science, students are learning about the earth and space. We started looking at rock, minerals, soils, and the layers inside and outside the earth. We then explored volcanoes, tectonic plates and earthquakes. Students learned about the weather, oceans, and the water cycle. The sky was next, where we studied constellations, the Earth's seasons/climates and the phases of the moon, This led us to learning about our solar systems with previously presented concepts such as motion, energy and light. In Social Studies, students have learned about World War I, The Great Depression, World War II, and it's effect on South Carolina and the discrimination that African American soldiers encountered. We have discussed changes in agriculture, industry and home life following the war as well as the changes of Racial Discrimination.
Math has been all about Measurement and Geometry! We explored capacity, mass and telling time. Then, students learned to collect and record all kinds of measurement data in a variety of ways. Area and Perimeter was a challenge, especially when looking at composite figures, but we kept at it until we excelled and we are now experts! Finally, we played with shapes and learned about their angles and characteristics.
In Language Arts, we have really focused on our writing! We practiced reading informational passages and responding in a variety of ways, such as analyzing the author's ideas by using evidence from the passage to support our response. We make sure to start out with a topic sentence to begin our writing as well as a good concluding sentence at the end, after we have included lots of details in our body of the writing.
