Over the past few days, we have been diving into our last two objectives for this unit about soil & the rock cycle. Check your child's notebook for a vocabulary chart and 11 review questions from the textbook. We had three days to get this work complete. If your child does not have it, please encourage them to see me during homeroom to get the work finished.
Today we used the article "Water on Earth" (see below) to learn more about weathering and erosion. Your child was supposed to annotate the text and answer the comprehension questions for homework tonight in preparation for the class discussion tomorrow. If you cannot find the assignment, please print a copy below.
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
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! :)
