Math:

This week, students will continue to investigate different extended number patterns. This is a pre-algebra concept, and students are enjoying this hands-on math activity! 




Field Trip:  

Permission slips have been sent home for our field trip to the "Chief Lelooska Cultural Museum on June 15th. Students will get to enter a traditional long house, where members of the Lelooska Foundation will perform Native American stories and fables while wearing elaborate masks carved by Chief Lelooska himself. Students will also visit the museum that houses a treasure of Native American artifacts collected from tribes across the United States. Afterward, we will have a picnic lunch at Merwin Dam Park.

Models & Designs

Students will assume the roles as scientists as they try to figure out what hidden systems look like and how they work. Then, they will turn into engineers as they try to design self-propelled carts from simple construction materials. 




Language Arts

In keeping with our study about Native American culture, we will be reading myths and legends of the Northwest Tribes. This week, we will read "Frog Girl" and "Storm Boy" to find themes we can compare & contrast.
