The fifth graders will be the sayers of the truth for this month’s virtue assembly. Come watch them act out a few of Aesop’s fables that focus on the month’s virtue, temperance. The assembly is scheduled for Tuesday, November 21st at 9am and will take place in the gym. Hope to see you there!
Students should prepare to take a quiz covering Chapters 7-9 and vocabulary on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.
We will be reviewing Monday and Tuesday for our upcoming science test on chapter 3 – Our Planet – Earth. Here is the study guide that I will send home on Monday.
Chapter 3 Test Study Guide
Wednesday, November 15th
Vocabulary (matching)—atmosphere, biosphere, climate, condensation, evaporation, geosphere, groundwater, hydrosphere, mineral, precipitation, rock, rock cycle, transpiration, weather, uplift
Four systems of Earth—biosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere—be able to define and describe each in detail—layers of atmosphere/geosphere and characteristics of each layer, how water is distributed in hydrosphere, interactions between systems (examples in notes and HW)
Types of rocks—igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic—how each forms and how the rock cycle can turn any one kind into another
Weather vs. climate—how are these two terms different
How water vapor enters the atmosphere—evaporation, transpiration, cellular respiration (what each is)
Changing states of water—liquid to gas (evaporation), gas to liquid (condensation)—energy ultimately comes from Sun
Ch.3 – Our Planet – Earth
Students are now learning about Earth. Key topics throughout the chapter are about the atmosphere/geosphere/hydrosphere, water cycle, rock cycle, faults, and weathering/erosion.
A history quiz will take place on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017. It will cover Chapters 4, 5, and 6, as well as vocabulary.
We are reviewing chapter 2: Earth in Space during class Thursday, October 26th. Students will have the study guide to help them study for the test. We will be testing on Monday, October 30th.
The math cumulative exam for quarter 1 will be given on Thursday, October 26th. The test will cover all of the material from the start of the year.
