Polar Regions Social Studies Test

We have had such a wonderful time learning about Polar Regions in Social Studies!  Students did a fantastic job on their recent Polar Animal Power Point Presentations!  
On Thursday, March 5th, we will have an open book test over this material.  Students will be using their "ABC's of Polar Regions" research books for this test.  A sample page from this book is shown above.  We have been busy making these in class over the last several weeks.

There will be one portion of the test that students will need to study for.  You will find the comparison chart of the Arctic and the Antarctic/Antarctica here, as well as listed in the important documents section of the blog.  Students also have a copy of this in their 4th grade binders.  Please remind students to study the material on this chart and be familiar with similarities and differences between the two regions.  
Thanks so much!!!

Snapshots from This Week in 4th Grade

This week our FPD 4th graders enjoyed touring Vulcan Granite Quarry!  Students saw igneous and sedimentary rocks in the quarry, as well as toured the quarry grounds.  It was a wonderful trip!

We also were visited by GA Power in the Science Lab this week.  Students learned about magnetism, electricity, insulators, conductors, and more!  Several students were interested in the energy stick that we used.  This is the link to find it online:

Upcoming Monday Math dates

  Monday Math will be offered every Monday between now and the Spring Holidays Break except the Monday I have carpool-March 16. We meet from 2:50-3:20. Afterwards they are sent to carpool. This is an opportunity for students to come ask questions on skills and have a little extra small group practice time.
