Math- composite Figures

Today we will talk more about composite figures, or irregular shapes. That is a shape that can be divided into more than one basic shape. For instance the letter H can be looked at like three rectangles put together.

Check out this Khan Academy Video and continue the exploration by watching the remainder of the videos and practices on the left hand side. Listen carefully because this is a tricky concept that we will continue to look at. There is no “worksheet” practice due today, just complete the practice from Khan Academy. Try your best, not to worry if you get some wrong, we will be spending the rest of the week practicing this.

DMC #7

SOCIAL STUDIES- Photograph Analysis

In this video, there is an example of analyzing a photograph/illustration using the See, Think, Wonder template that we have utilized in our science units of study. You will learn how to analyze a photograph/illustration by making observations about the people, objects and activities. You will then learn how to look at the “main idea” of the photograph by thinking about what activities you observed happening in the picture. Then some example wonderings are shared with you based on the illustration. Watch this video. Click on the Google slideshow showing the next photograph/illustration you will be analyzing using the See, Think, Wonder template. Copy and paste the slides into your own E-Learning Slideshow or print them out and upload them later. Due Tomorrow.
