April Update 2021
Welcome Spring! At last the warm weather is here. April vacation is fast approaching, but we still have much to do this month.
The stories in Reading concern systems. Stories will deal with how elements of systems change. We will read about the rock cycle, water cycle, and how volcanoes work. This unit will tie in with what we have been studying in science.
Fifth grade Social Studies is beginning to learn about the Young Republic. This will include the westward movement, Lewis and Clark, and the War of 1812. We are learning so much about our country.
Fourth grade Social Studies is learning about the Southwest region of the United States. We will learn about the deserts and the people who lived there in the past. We will also study the way we use the natural resources of the region.
Sixth grade Social Studies is working on the study of Islam and then on to the geography of Africa. This will involve learning about the physical features, the history of the different regions, and modern life.
