We began the day working on our summative projects.
We then had French and then Gym.
After first recess and lunch we had Music.
When we returned, we had fun with math!!! First we reviewed what we learned yesterday about Litres:
Learning from Yesterday:
We were introduced to the term Litre written as L and that the litre is a unit used to measure how much a container holds. We looked at five different containers and we made predictions about which one would hold the most and which one would hold the least. We then made predictions about which one would hold about 1 litre. We found out that the detergent container held 1 Litre. Once we had this benchmark we made predictions about each container about whether or not they could hold about a litre, more than a litre or less than a litre. We found out that the milk container and the juice jug held more, the plastic container held 1 litre (even though it was shorter than the detergent container but it was much wider!) and the plastic cup held less than a litre. We then learned that 4 glasses go into 1 litre and we used this knowledge to complete measuring capacity activities.
So if 1L = 4 glasses
2L= 8 glasses
3L = 12
4L = 16
5L = 20
Our knowledge of multiplication became very handy today!!!! We were able to determine how many glasses would go into 20 litres= 80 glasses!!
We then learned that we would use litres when measuring the capacity of larger container but for smaller containers we would use millilitres. We found out that in 1 L = 1000 mL!!!!! So then in 2L = 2000mL and in 3L=3000 mL and so on. We then practiced measuring in mL by making a magic potion!!! Check them out!!!!
After second recess and lunch we finished working on our summative project.
Tomorrow students will begin presenting their summative project.
1. Read for 20 minutes
4. Math sheet (if not finished in class)
5. Math test Monday
6. Permission form due Monday
7. Practice for Summative presentation tomorrow
8. Practice for in class speech competition on Monday
