In science we have ended the space and space technology unit. Students made models of the solar system, learned the difference between the birth of our Sun and the Big Bang, learned how to read a star chart and identify some prominent constellations, made a space technology timeline poster and experimented with straw rockets. We will transition into a physics unit on force and motion as well as simple machines. Students will be building their own machines later in this unit and  they will demonstrate their machines in  an "Invention Convention" held for the other grades to see.
In ELA, students are reading non fiction books and articles about the American Revolution in order to make a Power Point presentation about an area of interest to them.
 There is a new reading log format  Also, students should still be recording their thinking while they are reading for 30 minutes each night using post its.
