The Week of April 13, 2015

I trust your Spring Break has given you some downtime to refresh and build up enough energy for one last push until the end of the school year.  This week is shaping up to be action-packed!

This is our last week before the Georgia Milestones Assessment, so we will spend our time together continuing to review and "brush-up" on topics we've discussed this year.

In math, we will focus on geometry concepts.  We will be focusing on:

1.  Area of composite figures
2.  Volume
3.  Surface area

You will have plenty of opportunities to review these concepts in class.  You will have homework due Monday and Tuesday night, as well as a Compass Learning assignment due Friday.  This will help you prepare for a review quiz on geometry Thursday.  Don't forget that your PIN folder is a great resource you can use to help you review.  Math tutorial will take place Tuesday and Thursday from 3:15-4:00.

This week's science lessons will involve a review of the four branches of Earth science:  geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.  Each of you will get a topic about which you will create a short 5-minute presentation.  Your presentation will help your classmates remember what we studied about your topic.  You will have all week to prepare, and the presentations will take place Friday.  Here is the rubric and planning sheet you will use when creating your presentation.

Finally, don't forget that Friday is a dress-down day for $1.00.  All proceeds will benefit Relay for Life.

Enjoy the last few moments of your Spring Break,
Mr. Trent
