• December


    In the month of December, the fourth grade students will be enjoying a two day assembly/workshop related to our current unit of science, Energy. Thank you in advance to the USREF for funding this program. We are so excited for what is in store for us!


    Our Units of study for the month are: 

    Reading and Writing-Non fiction

    Science- Energy 

    Performance Expectations Include: 

    • 4-PS3-1. Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

    • 4-PS3-2. Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. 

    • 4-PS3-3. Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide. 

    • 4-PS3-4.Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. 

    • 4-ESS3-1. Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment. 


    Math- Unit 3- In this unit, students explore fraction equivalence and compare and order fractions using different representations. They then extend their understanding of fractions to decimals, comparing and ordering decimals using the same methods as for comparing fractions.
