Make a claim.
Cite evidence  from a source to prove our claim is correct.





WHAT IS THIS GIRL'S CLAIM?

Flaming Fred & Funny Frank Enjoy a Funky Frappuccino

1 Comments

The fun furious future freaky fairy farmers named Flaming Fred and Funny Frank finally had a fantastic fancy funky flavored frappuccino at Finland from Frankfurt and felt a fast fat fizzly flamingo with a flock of furious flying fruity flippers going on a friendly fishing frenzy with a furry fox on the fifth of fried fajita Friday but Freddie played fetch with his Frito and fell so his faithful friend said it was fine.


That story is FANTASTICALLY FUNNY, Landen!

Just ask the minions.

It's Pi Day!

1 Comments


Today, March 14, is Pi Day.


...and by Pi, I mean Pi (as in the math kind of Pi).


However, if you want to eat pie on Pi day, that's okay with me!

In fact, I think you should start the day with a pancake pie.

Have pot pie for lunch.

Order a pizza pie for dinner.

Then go straight for the chocolate cream pie.

But that's just me.




So, what is Pi?

 
 
Awesome!
 
Here are a few fun Pi Day resources:
 
Pi Day at the Exploratorium
Scholastic Pie Day Fun
How to Celebrate Pi Day
Mrs. Highley's Class
Make a Pi Necklace
Celebrate the Circle 
Pi Day Around the World
TeachPi.org  
Eat Pie
 


Students enjoying Pi Day at Western Connecticut State University.

Seriously, celebrating Pi Day is as easy as 3.141592653.

Have fun!

It's Called the Voluuuuume!

2 Comments

This week we are continuing our geometry unit, by learning a thing or two about VOLUME!


Here is a happy video to get your brain prepped.

I'm sorry if you sing this song for the rest of your life.



Don't you forget the 3...

make sure it's cubic units!








Hmmm... what's VOLUME?


 


Here's the formula to file away in one of your brain folders:




Let's practice...





Just grab an object shaped like a rectangular prism and a ruler!



Click here for a cool flipbook to help you remember the formula for VOLUME. Make sure you add them to your math spiral and that your notebook is up to date.

This is what the flipbook will look like once it's glued in...


...and here are the notebook pages!

If you did not complete the Quick Check in CC,
please send me your answers before Friday!



Haaaaaaaaapyyyyyy...
