Fifth grade is learning how to model and solve equations. Hands on Equations has been a great way to understand how to balance equations.

This week, we have been working on “designing” our zoos. We need to use area and perimeter in order to make the exhibits, gift shops, and everything else the right size. We learned that objects with the same area can have different perimeters, and that if they have the same perimeters they can still have different areas. We also had fun doing it!!! Designing the zoo itself was hard, like it should be. We learned so much about area and perimeter!

Third Grade had some great discussions as we thought about geometry a little deeper using Always, Sometimes, Never. The students had to work together to decide if statements about geometry are always, sometimes, or never true. See what they came up with below.
