Learning Goals for the Week of September 29th,2014
Social Studies-Students are learning about the differences between a rule and law. They will be able to describe the importance of laws and how they protect the rights, provide benefits, and assign responsiblities to each citizen. Students will also be working on identifying the three different branches of government and the roles of each of those branches. They will look at how power is distributed between those branches and identify that equal power protects their rights as a citizen.
Science-We are finishing up our first unit in science. We have spent time learning to conduct safe, simple science experiments. We have also learned to use science tools properly and have been working to communicate our sciencetific findings in clear and concise ways. We have our unit test over this information on Monday, September 29th. Afterwards, we will be stepping away from science to concentrate on Social Studies learning standards. When we return to science, we will be studying physical science content beginning with matter conservation and thermal energy. We will then move to electricity and creating a series and parallel circuits.
