Next week we will be working on Lesson 14, The Constitution. In this Lesson students will learn about the three branches of government and their “Powers”. All late/missing assignments (tests) as well as retakes are all due on Wednesday, June 5th.

Science: Students will learn the important job lungs have in the human body. They will discover how oxygen is exchangd for carbon dioxide in the lungs. Students will learn how muscles help the lungs work. They will do an activity to measure the amount of air their lungs can hold (lung capacity).

 

Family Life: In lesson 4, Students will learn the changes that occur during puberty and the importance of dealing with the stress of maturing.

English/Language Arts: Hello HRS families! Next week, we will continue with our Genius Hour presentations. These have been so much fun, and I’m inspired by your kid’s depth of knowledge on their topics. Their project grade is a combination of presentation skills and research. I’m looking for four credible sources cited on their slides, with information that is neatly organized and not too distracting. They also learned PVLEGS for presentation skills: poise, voice, life, eye contact, gestures, and speed. Students will also be meeting with their book club groups for a final project. They can choose to do an interview, movie poster, skit, or letter to the author. Also, because we didn’t finish the vocab book, I picked 12 words from the final few units that 5th graders should know. Students are using their vocab books to write definitions on a worksheet (due Monday). The test will be on the week of June 10-14. Have a great weekend!

Religion: Students have completed a study guide in class to prepare for a quiz on the Paschal Mystery next Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
