 Humanities:
This week we will continue to present our ‘Significant Stories of Change.’ Once these are complete, I will be sending the rubrics home for review. We will also continue to work on our Weaselhead tree illustrated stories. Cathy Beveridge, our expert author, will be in again on Friday to assist students with their story development and characterization. We will also be working with a mixed media artist to create the visuals for this project.  Please see the website under Humanities (Social Studies term 1) for activities on character development I have also provided the scientific outcomes they must incorporate into their stories.

Math/Science:
This week we will be focusing on developing an understand of the Weaselhead. Students will be looking at all the things living in, on, and around their adopted tree. We will also be looking more deeply into the roll of trees in the nutrient cycles and issues surrounding human needs and the needs of the environment. This week will have a large focus on Science in order to help students be prepared for the incoming artist on Friday. Last weeks quiz will be coming home shortly. Please look it over with your son or daughter, sign it and return it. 

Have a great week!
