During this unit, readers will continue to improve their non-fiction reading skills while working on their speaking and listening skills. Students will learn how to read non-fiction, really read it, fully and deeply from the first page to the last. Students will learn to take information from one book and add it to information from another, thinking and learning about a topic across many texts, not just one. Please see the attached checklist for reading goals the students should be achieving for the unit.
Students will continue to learn to write as scientists. Students will continue to study the world around them and put their thoughts to paper. They will pose questions and hypothesis, conduct experiments and write about their results in lab reports. Students will study mentor texts like procedural writing and ask what the author has done that they can try as well. Please see the attached checklist for the goals students should be achieving.
Chapter 7 –It is hard to believe how far we have come in math. During this chapter students will be learning how to work with money and time.
