During May we will begin our fantasy unit and author study on Roald Dahl. We will study his craft and read a book together with the class. At the end of the unit, we will take what we learned and create our very own fantasies.
Unit 11 in Everyday Math reviews properties of 3- dimensional shapes and then develops formulas for the volume of prisms and cylinders.
This month we are studying light. We will do various experiments using lasers, flashlights, and other hands on manipulatives. We will also learn the parts of the eye and learn about how we see.
In Social Studies this month, we will continue learning about Westward Expansion and the challenges that the Corps of Discovery encountered on their Journey West. Later, we will learn about the pioneers and The Transcontinental Railroad.
