**Math:** This week we begin to look at multiplication and division facts with **unknown** numbers.

**3.OA.A.4:**Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers.

**Science: **We will continue to learn about and explore balanced and unbalanced forces.

**3-PS2-1**Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of

balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

**Social Studies:** This week we begin to look at economic growth in Michigan!

**E1.0.3**Analyze how Michigan’s location and natural resources influenced its economic development.

# Weekly Focus

**Reading:** This week we will be working on point of view in the text.

**RI 3.6**Distinguish their own point of view from that of the author of a text.

**Writing:** We are continuing to write on informative/explanatory text. The students are researching and writing about an animal.

**W3.2**Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

**Math:** This week we will learn how to solve word problems using multiplication and division.

**3.OA.A.2:**Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.**3.OA.A.3**: Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

**Science: **This week will are starting our new science unit. We will be learning about balanced and unbalanced forces.

**3-PS2-1**Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of

balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.**3-PS2-2**Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

**Social Studies:** This week we will be taking our test on Michigan History. Students will receive a study guide on Monday and test will be on Tuesday.
