Welcome back for the 2013-2014 school year. In 5th grade, we have already been busy learning.
- In math we are learning a about whole numbers up to the hundred billions place. Can your child read this number for you: 345,769,000,003? We are also learning about decimal numbers to the thousandths place. Can your child read this number for you: 5.036? We are comparing numbers and putting them in order.
- In science we are learning about safety and how to use resources wisely, both in the lab and at home. We are learning about variables in an investigation and the difference between an investigation and an experiment.
