Social Studies

Freedom and the New Nation: Federal, State and the Local Government

Students study the role of compromise in the U.S. Constitution and comprehend the reasons for balance of power within the United States Government.

Science

Students investigate the role the animal senses, primarily vision play in survival as they try to understand why there is a decline in the number of Tokay Geckos living in one area of a rainforest in the Philippines.

Literacy

Historical Book Clubs: Students will be working on many reading skills during the Historical Fiction Book Clubs.  This unit specifically works on developing ideas about characters, determining themes, inferring within a text, comparing and contrasting texts, synthesizing across texts and reading and writing about reading.

Writing

Graphic Novel Writing: Students will take part in a narrative writing using pictures and words. This unit gives students an opportunity to put their narrative craft skills to use in an entirely new medium, one that kids are known to love and cheer for. In this new approach we will be supporting students in writing with plot, pacing, craft, and elaboration. Students will study the question, “how can I use words and pictures to craft writing that makes it irresistible for the reader to turn the page?”
