In science, we are well into our Changing Earth unit. The  Changing Earth examines the forces that have shaped our planet. Right now student's are learning about the theory of plate tectonics, and how the plates move across the mantle.  This unit includes many models the students make in order to understand the earth and how the surface has been constantly changing. 
 In language arts, students are reading books of their own choice, setting goals of where they would like to improve this year and working in reading partnerships. They are also working on writing their own personal narrative story.
