Watch this video to observe how we can create a graduated cylinder that holds one liter. We can then use that new measuring tool to measure the capacity of an unknown container.

Watch this video and learn how you can use a graduated cylinder to measure an unknown container’s capacity.

The experiment you observed in the videos above is detailed on workbook pages 41 and 42. If you would like to try to recreate this experiment, you can. Take a video of yourself and upload it to Seesaw. I would love to see your work! Good luck and have fun!

Please complete workbook pages 41-44.

science: Weather and Climate Part 3: 2 Day activity 

In this lesson, Mystery Doug will take you on an adventure around the world to identify climate zones and weather patterns. Watch the introductory video carefully so you will know how to prepare for the awesome learning opportunity that Doug has for prepared for you.  Please use the slides Weather & Climate Part Three to guide you for your work today.

 

This is a two day activity, so you can finish it by the end of the day Friday.

  1. Watch Mrs. Boyer’s video- VERY IMPORTANT to do before you start
  2. Print out maps and gather materials for the activity during video- found in Weather & Climate Part Three Slides in your Science Folder
    • NOTE: In the video they show supplies for a group because it is made for a classroom activity, you will only need one of each of the maps to complete the activity. So since we aren’t in class, when Doug says get 2 maps you are only printing 1 map of each that we provided–follow Ms. Boyer’s directions.
    • Also, when he mentions check with a partner–this may mean zoom with a partner or check with a parent
  3. Watch Mystery Doug video: Climate, Geography and Global Weather Patterns
  4. Color in Climate Decoder. Color in the maps.  Doug walks you through this step by step.
  5. Answer questions in slides
  6. Share new learnings and new questions on Seesaw (show your maps too either on seesaw or slides)
SMART FACT- JUST FOR FUN 🙂

On this day in 1993 the World Wide Web was born. A team at the University of Illinois’ National Center for Supercomputing Applications released Mosaic, the first Web browser to become popular with the general public. The next few years saw the launch of such websites as Yahoo (1994), Amazon (1995), eBay (1995) and Google (1998).  What do you imagine the future of the web to be like when you are in college?

Participating in a virtual book club can look and feel a little different than the book clubs that you were in at school. Watch the video to see how you can still be an active participant in these new book clubs, and how much of the good book club habits you gained at school can be applied to your clubs now at home. 

Today you will continue your book club reading, as well as complete one activity from the Reading BINGO board. (Found in your Reading Folder.)Be sure to complete your activity on paper first, and then take a picture/or video of your work to show us on Seesaw. When you record on Seesaw, tell us what book you are reading, and introduce the activity that you chose. 

The BINGO board can be found in your reading folder.
math-liters

There are two systems that are used for measurement, a customary one used in the United States, and the metric system used in most of the world and also in the sciences in the United States. We will continue to look at the metric system used for capacity.

Watch the video below to understand more about capacity and units of measurement; liters and milliliters. NOTE: YouTube video is not school protected so parental settings may need to be lifted:

Watch today’s video to measure and estimate the capacity of containers in liters.  Is it less than or more than a 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? Try to post your containers and explanations on Seesaw.

smart fact- Just for fun 🙂

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.

ELA: Reading & Poetry – “The Wind”

Continue reading your independent reading books or discovering new texts with Epic.

Reading poetry can be different than reading prose, or the typical way text is written in books or articles. It is organized into lines and groups of lines that are called stanzas. (Stanzas are the paragraphs of poetry.)

Read the poem, “The Wind”.  I made a Google Slides to view the poem and the questions. Print your answers or write them in the E-Learning Slideshow. You can put your answers in the ELA section with the heading “The Wind” and today’s date.
