I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.
This week in Social Studies, we are applying our study of the Materials Economy to our final interdisciplinary performance task on relationships. The students will research the impact of the Materials Economy on a biome that they have studied in science, finding problems associated with the Materials Economy as well as finding and/or developing sustainable solutions. They will write and perform a TED talk style speech over the next three weeks.
In English, students are writing their scripts for a speech about a favourite book from the semester. They will perform the speech next week in class – Beck homebase will be on Wednesday 25th May and Vergel homebase will be on Thursday 26th May. Please help your child to practise their speech at home.
This Friday, May 20th is the last day for summer book checkout from the Library. All books not checked out for summer need to be returned by this day. The Genre Wheel reading project also finishes this week so all entries into their Genre Wheel logs need to be inputted by Friday.
