From Mrs. Litke

Students in periods 1, 2, 3, & 7 will begin a new chapter on Thursday. We will start working on multiplying and dividing fractions and mixed numbers.  Students will be taught using models and the standard algorithm.  Check out these games to practice multiplying and dividing fractions.  Make sure all answers are in simplest form!multiplying-fractions

Science Update

From Mrs. Cordone

In science we are currently working on a unit about cells.  We will be learning about different organelles in cells.  We will also be comparing plant cells and animal cells.  The science labs for this unit are very interesting.  Students will look at chloroplasts in live plant cells.  Students will also be doing a lab on diffusion and osmosis.  This is one of my favorite labs and is called the rubber egg.
