    Dear Fifth Grade Parents,


    Hopefully we will have a full week without snow delays! Students may bring in found objects for their PBL project. Found objects aren't bought, but may be recycled or given to charities. Some examples of found objects are paper towel rolls, soda bottles (plastic), a shoe box, laundry detergent bottle, newspaper, etc. If you aren't sure, please reach out to me. 

    Our PBL driving question is: How can my knowledge of body systems be used to devise an intervention plan to remain healthy?

    Our PBL showcase is on 2/28/20 in the afternoon. I hope you can join us for it!

    Have a great week-  


    Reading instructions: Students are to read 25 minutes daily and choose two activities per week and write 3-5 sentences on a sheet of paper to hand in on Fridays or the last day of the week.
