Tuesday, February 27th

Today in math, we continued to explore geometry.  So far, we looked at 2D shapes and their properties: sides, vertices, congruency, similarity, symmetry, and angles.  We just started looking at 3D shapes and their properties.

The class really enjoyed building 3D shapes today!  



Homework:
-Students went home with a practice sheet on 3D shapes.  This is due on Thursday.

Reminder:
Friday is Hat Day.  Students may wear their choice of hat.  All contributions will be going towards our Lenten project - Ryan's Well.

We wrapped up our unit on data management last week.  Some of the work that the students created on the Chrome books to show their understanding of double bar graphs are shown below:



Our new focus in math is geometry.  This week, our learning goal is to identify 2D shapes and their properties.  Today, students were using technology to demonstrate their learning.  This approach had students really engaged!
