Smart Fact

On this day in 1891 Music Hall (Carnegie Hall) opened in New York, Tchaikovsky was the guest conductor. Tchaikovsky was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, which he bolstered with appearances as a guest conductor later in his career in Europe and the United States. One of these appearances was at the inaugural concert of Carnegie Hall in New York City in 1891. Disney’ movie, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms is a great way to enjoy Tchaikovsky’s famous score.

Watch the video below to understand more about capacity and units of measurement; liters and milliliters. 

NOTE: This is not from our school so parental settings will need to be adjusted if they are turned on.

Watch today’s video to measure and estimate the capacity of containers in liters.  Is it less than or more than 1 liter?

Today explore your kitchen and find containers of liquid.  Can you find containers 1 liter or more and can you find containers less than 1 liter? Post your containers and explanations on Seesaw.

SMART FACT

On April 28, 1916, Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of the car company that bears his name and is known for stylish, high-performance cars, was born in Italy. His first business was making tractors. He decided to make sports cars when the Ferrari that he owned had mechanical difficulties. The very first Lamborghini 350 GTV was released in 1963 and the company’s logo was established as bull. Take this logo quiz to see how many companies you can easily recognize.

MATH: COMPARING CAPACITY

Watch this video first to recap our work from last week and move into our new unit of study. Can you guess what that might be?

Watch this video below to learn about another measurement called capacity.  Capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold.  You will watch a demonstration how different containers can have different shapes and sizes and a variety of capacities.

Look around your house for different containers. Can you find the capacities and can you compare them?  Show us what you learn today and post it on seesaw. Remember to ask an adult if it is ok to do this and be mindful with your water.

SCIENCE: Weather and Climate due Wednesday

Please watch the video in its entirety so you’ll be prepared with all that you need to enjoy this learning opportunity with Mystery Doug. You’ll learn how to spot a storm and create a booklet that highlights different types of clouds. This is a two day assignment, it is due on Wednesday

In this Mystery, students learn how to make predictions about the weather by observing clouds and their changes. In the activity, Storm Spotter’s Guide, you will create a small book to record your notes, identify different types of clouds, and think about wind direction to figure out if a storm is heading your way.

Steps to complete:

  • Weather & Climate Part One Slides are in your science folder. 
  • Print booklet : mystery-science before watching the video
  • The link to watch Mystery Doug “Stormy Skies” is on the slides.
  • Watch video and Doug will prompt step by step along the way (he will show you how to make the Storm Spotter’s guidebook)
  • Notice at the end of the video he will prompt you with a picture, you will guess, then check your answers with “Here’s what we think…”
  • Post a video of your Storm Spotter’s Guide on Seesaw

SMART FACT

On this day in 1810 Ludwig van Beethoven composed his famous piano piece Für Elise. It is probably the most famous piano piece ever composed.  If you are not familiar with the beautiful

ELA- POETRY: GOOGLE DRAWINGS

Today, poets, your job is to select your favorite poem from the last few weeks of our poetry unit. Pick one that you are proud of and want to share for our Heathcote Virtual Art and Poetry Festival. Watch the video, and create your own Google Drawing in your Writing folder of your Drive to publish your poem.

You have both today and tomorrow to create your drawing. Please be sure that your spelling and punctuation are correct. Include your first name or your initials only.

Please complete 30 minutes of independent reading. If you would like, check out  Storyworks, Scholastic News, Epic and True Flix on the library databases. The book, “What is a Thunderstorm?” was assigned to you on Epic. Please complete this reading. 

MATH- ADDING AND SUBTRACTING COMPOUND UNITS

Today we will continue to look at compound units kg and g.  You will learn a few strategies to help you add mass in kg and g or subtract g from k.  Please look closely at the different strategies mentioned in the video and decide which method works best for you.

NOTE: If regrouping while subtracting is difficult for you, please continue to practice this skill separately. Maybe practice subtraction problems without the units ahead of time. For ex, 127-38 or 456- 76. It is important to understand the renaming process.

**NOTE: math video corrections:

  • #14 b answer is 5kg 100g and
  • #15 I transcribed the problem wrong. The correct problem is 32kg -25kg 750g=6kg 250 g.

Please show your work on a separate sheet of paper and add to your E-Learning slides under math. Remember to be neat and label the pages and problems, so we can refer to your work and guide you if needed.

READING/WRITING ~POETRY: Acrostic Poems

Poetry for Heathcote Art & Poetry Festival

Today you are being asked to choose a poem that you already wrote (not a published poem from a website) that you would like to share and present on Heathcote’s Virtual Art and Poetry Festival. You have been writing a collection of poems over the last two weeks, so this shouldn’t take too long to choose. Once you have chosen your favorite poem, you will learn how to create a “Google Drawing” in your “Writing Folder” on your drive. You will learn about inserting pictures, drawings and other creative and colorful options that relate to the poem’s meaning. At the same time, our class will learn how to include your poems in a google shape of your choosing. Most importantly, your writing MUST be readable – meaning color and font choice should be carefully chosen.

This assignment will be due Friday, April 24th . Poems will then be inserted onto padlets that will be assigned to our class by Tuesday April 28th. The poetry festival will be live on April 29th for all to see.  We will go over all of this during today’s tech zoom session with Mr. Casal.  Please keep in mind our zoom session may run a little longer than usual today.

 

Please watch the video below to learn about acrostic poems.

The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, when a United States senator from Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues. Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government had created the Environmental Protection Agency. By 1990, Earth Day was an event celebrated by more than 140 countries around the globe. Click on this National Geographic link to learn how you can help to make a difference
