This week was a busy week as we wrapped up our opinion writing pieces, drafted a counterclaim, gave parnter feedback on our writing, practiced and performed Reader's Theatre, as well as several fun activities practicing our area and perimeter.
With our writing we continued the editing and revising process by reading each other's writing. We looked for reasons with examples and thought about what an appropriate counterclaim would be. After we finished our final tweaks, we practiced our handwriting skills by creating our final drafts then we utilized those final drafts to practice our typing skills by creating a soft copy version on Google Docs.
To hone our reading, interpretation, and public speaking skills we practiced and presented several skits to our classmates. Our skits were based on topics related to "How the World Works' and we continued our understanding of the Earth's form, how it changes, and the effects of some of those changes.
We integrated area and perimeter into our perspective on art, geography, and games this week. We had a little fun by using the dice to create a race to see who could measure out the most area in 15 minutes. We got artistic by plotting out our name on graph paper and calculating the area and perimeter. Finally, we incorporated geography and created our own city planning.
