Math: We are wrapping up our unit on multiplication of a whole number by a fraction. Next, we will begin multiplication of a fraction by a fraction.
Reading: After we finish our current literature circle novel, we will begin another unit in Junior Great Books.
Science: We are getting "squared away" in our current unit on the moon. We have learned about phases of the moon, eclipses, rotation, revolution, synchronous orbit, elliptical orbit, and heliocentric and geocentric theories. Or post test for this unit will be on Tuesday 4/15 for all classes. (The same day as the lunar eclipse :) )
Our next unit is a mini unit on the Reasons for Seasons, followed by our final unit of Floating and Sinking.
