Reading: Please let me know if you are interested in joining the MS read-a-thon.
I would like all the students to start reading at least 10 minutes a day. I will be giving them a reading log this week.
Science: We are about to begin a new science unit called “Energy in Our Lives.” During this unit, the
students will be observing and investigating the forms of energy that they come in contact with in
their daily lives. They will be discussing the sun’s importance in sustaining all life. Food as a
source of energy for functioning in daily activities is also a focal point.
For the culminating activity, students will conduct an investigation of energy use at school to identify
an area where energy could be saved. Posters will be designed and displayed in an attempt to
influence a change in energy consumption. Data will be collected and graphed before and after the
posters have been displayed.
