In Math this week, we are starting a new chapter on Geometry.  The students will learn how to identify, classify, and describe two- and three-dimensional figures. As part of our study of different cultures in Social Studies, we'll be reading and discussing some of Aesop's fables, which were written to teach a moral, or lesson. In the coming days, we'll also be examining some American forms of storytelling, including tall tales (Paul Bunyan's adventures) and legends (the story of George Washington and the Cherry Tree). In Science, the students will be watching a video on volcanoes and creating a giant mural to celebrate Earth Day. The students will receive instructions on Thursday for a "Changing Earth" project which must be completed at home. The project will be due on Thursday, April 28th.
