Science:    We spent today on Mars.  Students had to plan a rout on the martian planet.  They had to calculate how long it would take them to walk if they went 3 mph.  They had 48 hours to make the trip.  Students then hand to take 15 items and rank them based on importance.  This was done independently, then as a group.  We talked afterwards on what NASA ranked the items and the justification NASA gave.


Homework:   Huge math review packet reviewing concepts and skills we have covered so far this year.  We’ve spent over 4.5 hours on this packet so far in class already.  Due tomorrow 5/18/18.  If you don’t know what your child is missing log into Skyward.  There is a link on the school homepage.  If you need help e-mail Terry in the office.  Below is a link to the Engage NY website.  Work can be printed off from there too.  Study math facts.
