Students will showcase the following projects: Geometry Cities Nonfiction Magazines (Meet the Press!) Tiny Houses Completed Genius Hour Projects Class Economy Projects County Fair Projects In math, we are continuing Topic 14: Graph Points on the Coordinate Plane. We are also launching a 2-week long project: Geometry Cities! Please click the links below for more information. Throughout our geometry unit, your child has learned the following skills: How to identify a geometrical figure using geometry vocabulary Naming geometrical elements and describing their features How to draw various figures given a set of characteristics How to find the area and perimeter of geometrical object The use of geometry in the real world such as in map reading, architecture, and more! Students will work in teams to sketch a blueprint, or rough draft, of their city, edit and revise the draft as a unit, and outline their vision on a large sheet of butcher paper. Students have been given a set of requirements for completing this assignment. Students will be graded on their work using a rubric. There will be points given based on neatness, teamwork, work ethic, and accuracy. This culminating activity will act as a significant portion of your child’s math grade for Term 4. Please read over the instructions included in this packet with your child and take a moment to look over the student samples here. In writing, students are publishing their nonfiction magazines using a program called, Canva. Learn all about it on www.canva.com! Magazines are created based on topics students are interested in and articles are written in the 5 different nonfiction text structures: compare & contrast, cause & effect, problem & solution, sequence & order, and description. Articles should be related to the magazine topic. See the rubric below for more information. Click the magazine cover pages below to get a SNEAK PEEK at our Magazines! For these last weeks of school, students will be participating in a classroom economy! This week, students will officially begin Phase 2 of this unit--using goods and services to create an income and contribute to our classroom economy. Students are choosing a skill or hobby they are passionate about, and working toward creating a store or service based on that idea. Examples that kids have come up with include: -Different flavors of popcorn -Friendship bracelets -Braiding hair -Painting nails -Creating Samurai objects from rocks -Creating store fronts for classmates Some students are choosing jobs and services that will require extra materials. They may ask you to take them to the store to purchase these items. Your family is in no way obligated to do this, however, donations are welcome. I have access to many materials and items that students can use. I have encouraged them to check with me first before coming home with requests. Please let me know how I can assist with this. In Social Studies during the week of ISTEP, students in all 4th grade classes will be researching a county in Indiana. Students have written letters to the Chamber of Commerce in their county seed and are eagerly awaiting responses! A final, “County Fair” will be held in classrooms in May during the last weeks of school! Stay tuned for more! Please let me know what questions you have about any of our upcoming learning goals or activities! Students are excited to end our year strong and I am thrilled to lead the way!
