Animal Classification & Adaptation Test

Posted on

Our Animal Adaptation and classification test will be on Friday, October 28th, next week. A review sheet for the classification portion went home yesterday. If your child misplaced it, I have included it right here for you to download: vertebrates . I have also included an adaptation video by Study Jams as a review. Please click on the picture below to watch the video and even test yourself in the end. Students, remember to leave a comment about what you learned from the video so that I can give you credit for doing a little extra.

Sound Test

We will have a test on the sound unit on Monday, December 3rd.





The children are completing a variety of science experiments for our sound unit. This is a loud unit for the classrooms that are close to ours.  Click on Making Horns to hear what we mean. We were able to see how pitch changes with the length of the straw. We have been reviewing  the specific vocabulary terms for this unit. Your child should have brought home flashcards to practice at the beginning of the week.   An online quiz, matching game or printable flashcards can be viewed by clicking on the picture below:

If your child would like to visit websites that provide a review, as well as, allow them to experiment with sounds, instruments, pitch and vibration, click on the pictures below:

We will have a Social Studies test on Tuesday. This will cover the regions of Michigan. Please help your child study the regions Michigan can be divided into, the unique regions of Michigan, and the regions of the U.S. that Michigan is a part of.

Also, please ask your child about why the regions are divided this way. What are the similar features and characteristics of the regions?

Let me know if there are any other questions.

Thanks for your support!
