We are one week into our first unit! We didn't really do much that can be posted here, unfortunately. Check out the objectives sheet that your child completed in their binders (or see a blank copy below!) While you're at it, ask to see their Layers of the Earth fold-able. It should be labeled with all of our vocabulary and other information that we discussed in class. We also watched a video on BrainPop about the Earth's structure. If you'd like to watch it again with your child, they should should have the login information. If not, feel free to e-mail me and I can provide it to you! We will be having a quiz on this first objective at the end of next week.
Vocabulary: crust (continental & oceanic), lithosphere, asthenosphere, mantle, inner core, outer core, tectonic plates, magnetic field
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
