Week in Review for 07/01/10 Merry Christmas to all Orthodox Christians!

This week in Math we were working on decimal fractions. We had to decide what column the decimal number belonged to. For example, 10.563, the 3 is in the thousandths column.We also had a number line and we had to decide which numbers went in between two other numbers.

This week in English we have been working on persuasive writing. We watched a video of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech and were focusing on how he made it persuasive. Another day we saw a slide show of some of the tools that help make writing persuasive. Some of them were logos, kairos, research and more!

In Inquiry we have been learning about biodiversity which means living things that depend and rely on other living things. We watched a video of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" on biodiversity. We also had a special guest come into class who was an Egyptian Tortoise called Mr. George. Then we split into 4 groups and had to find out the history, habitat, future, and lifestyle of the Egyptian Tortoise. After that we split into groups again and told each other what we found out so we could present it to everyone else in the class.

Thanks K!
