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.
