Learning Goals for the Week of May 18th, 2015
Social Studies- We are currently finishing a unit in which we have learned to identify how the 13 colonies united to fight for independence during the American Revolutionary War which led to the establishment of our nation.
Science- We will be spending the remaining school year learning that about 70% of the earth's surface is covered in water. Out of that 70% of water, only a very small percentage is freshwater which is found in rivers, lakes, streams and ground water. We will also be looking at changes to the earth's surface. Some of those changes happen slowly (erosion, weathering and depostition) while others happen very quickly ( volcanoes, earthquakes and flooding).
