We have wrapped up our study of the different forms of energy. We spent time in "expert groups" learning a form of energy and then teaching our peers about it. Students were able to create their own set of test questions and was given this past week.
We are now moving onto our next unit of study which revolves around food chains/webs, adaptations and composting! We are experimenting with composting by constructing a compost that uses newspaper with food scraps, dried leaves with food scraps, and dead grass with food scraps. We will see which one progresses quickest!
In thinking about our study of food chains/webs we are going to be creating mini terrariums! I have asked students to bring in ONE of the following: a 2L soda bottle, a large mason jar, or a large spaghetti sauce jar. If we could get those next week that would be great!
Yearbook Photo Request for 5th grade parents/guardians
Please submit ONE baby picture of your 5th grader to be published in this year's North Beverly yearbook. There will again be a section of baby pictures in the yearbook dedicated to our 5th graders. If you have a digital photo: Email directly (as an attachment) to: firstname.lastname@example.org If you have a hard copy photo: Send in a sealed envelope to school marked "Yearbook Baby Photo". Make sure to include student's name and teacher.
Questions have arisen regarding 5th graders and passing out cards. We will not have a party; however, if students would like to pass out cards they are more than welcome to do so. We will give them time on Friday to pass these out. We ask that if a student chooses to do them that they bring enough for each student in their homeroom.
