We began the day practicing our mental math multiplication skills. Then we reviewed divisibility rules from yesterday. After, we looked at newspaper articles and found that numbers are everywhere!!! We looked for exact numbers and estimates. We then had a conversation about when we would use exact numbers and when we would use estimates. We also practiced how to do long division and using the standard algorithm for multiplication. 

Next, we continued practicing for our summative presentation. Our success criteria for today:

I have achieved today’s success criteria that lead toward the learning goal because I …
ohave my cue cards ready
ohave rehearsed my oral presentation accompanied by a slideshow (Power Point, Prezi, etc.) aimed at the provincial government as the audience
oam comfortable using and explaining appropriate science and technology vocabulary relating to energy sources, transformations, and electricity
ohave equal speaking parts for my partner and I
oand my partner adhere to the 3 min. time limit
oI am ready to present tomorrow

Then we had French.

Next we worked on our electric cars for Science Fair. 

After first recess and lunch we worked in our literature circles for Chapter 14.

Next, we continued practicing for our summative presentations for tomorrow. Students had lots of time to practice for their presentation in class and should be ready for their presentation addressing the Mississauga and/or federal government about generating stations and/or the use and export of uranium around the world. 

After second recess and lunch we had physical education with Mr. Orr.
