Curricular Information:

Math:  We learned a new division game called “Division Capture.”  I sent a blank copy home with the kids so you can play if you like.  We also worked on some story problems and reviewed for our end of the year math assessment.


Social Studies:  We continued learning about Spokane.  We learned how the settlers started arriving because of Mullan Road.  We also learned who Antoine Plante was.  The students loved learning about Plante’s Ferry since many of them play soccer in that same spot.


Religion:  We continued learning about the Sacraments.  This week we talked about Matrimony and Holy Orders.  We added these to our process grid.  We also learned about Pentecost.


Science:  We created another circuit, but this time we tested materials to see if they were conductors or insulators of electricity.  We also learned about open and closed circuits.
