Below you will find a brief description and materials for suggested Math and Science activities for the week. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions or if you would like additional material.
A REBUS is a picture representation of a name, work, or phrase. Each "rebus" puzzle portrays a common word or phrase. In the attached puzzles, we challenge and encourage students (and families) to stretch their minds, think outside the box and solve these puzzles! Some of them are quite tricky!
Origo At Home – Week 2
Once again, the masterminds who created the Origo math curriculum we use in class have created another weekly, digital content plan for home use. The weekly plans contain activities for each day, along with digitally accessible or downloadable resources, designed for delivery by a caregiver or remote teacher. These resources align with the mathematical concepts and skills students are learning at their grade level. We encourage you to explore this website and the activities they have designed! This is a new component of the program- any user feedback would be greatly appreciated! Week 1 and Week 2 are available!
Design a Pool- Volume Project
In this application project, students will have the opportunity to design their own aquatic center, complete with a diving pool slide catch pool and more! In this project students will make use of the volume skills “ in an interview”. Then, they will study similar pool plans and finish original pool plans with missing dimensions. Finally, they will design their own aquatic center and determine the volume of each pool as well as the total volume of the park! Extensions of this project include plotting fractional units on a line plot, metric and customary conversions, even some persuasive writing!
Volume Color by Number-
This color and solve math activity is a fun and engaging way for students to calculate volume. Students must know how to calculate volume ( L x W x H ) or ( BA x H). This is a great opportunity for students to practice calculating volume in isolation through basic computation.
Parts of Plant Nearpod-
In this student paced, technology enhanced program, students can discover the various parts and functions of a plant. Nearpod is a great program that many students have used in the past in fourth grade to explore various topics in all content areas. Similar to many other programs we use, students can simply go to the link below and enter the code provided. Once they have entered they code they will be prompted to create a name- this name should be recognizable and identify who the student is ! ** Please ask your child's teacher for the individual class code** See the attached reading to further your understanding about the parts of a plant! Seeing how Spring has just begun, we encourage you to go out into the yard and make observations about the plants in your yard… what do you notice? Did you see any of the plant parts you read about?
