We're going on a Web Quest!

This morning in math we spent a great deal of time learning the meaning of the metric prefixes, such as milli, centi and kilo, to help us convert like metric measurements. For example, 1,000 grams is equal to 1 kilogram. This will not be on the quiz tomorrow but is on the unit assessment. The quiz tomorrow will cover elapsed time, measurement tools and units and capacity. There is an elapsed time worksheet for homework.

In reading we used our reading strategies and computer skills to work on an Aztec Web Quest. A web quest is kind of like a scavenger hunt on the computer. This particular web quest was created by an individual and then doctored by Mr. Vogel. It had several questions about the Aztec people and under each question was a link that takes the participant (your child) to a web site that has information which will help the student answer the question. It is a neat way to integrate reading, computer and social studies into one lesson!

Following lunch and recess we will return to the computer lab to do a Career Day lesson with Mrs. Howard. Then we will return to the classroom to read an article about "culture" and web some of the characteristics we discover.

Tomorrow is Pajama Day.
THe poetry project is due June 11, two weeks from today!
