This week in math, we're working on different statistics. We have learned that the mean is a "fair share" and also serves as a balance point. Our focus is on finding measures of central tendency such as mean, median, and mode. Range is also explored. Our unit test which will incorporate some graphing, will be on Friday.
In science, we are working on the Rock Cycle. Your child will be creating "rocks" out of crayons one day soon. Ask them about the process and how it relates to the real rock cycle on Friday.
"Raise the Bee" is happening for our class on 11/29. Thank you so much if you were able to sign up to come in to help supervise the building. The students are really excited about this and will go down in teams to design and build a tower to raise the bee. All you will have to do is walk them downstairs, watch as they collaborate to design and build the tower, and take some pictures of their process!
