The only homework that I am assigning for this upcoming weekend is to concentrate on finishing up projects that are due for next week.
This is the schedule for next week:
Monday: Simple Machine presentations
Students will be expected to give a 5-10 minute on their simple machine, and be able to demonstrate how it works.
Students will receive lessons on logic. In geometry, we will be exploring the
5 Platonic Solids.
Wednesday: Featured Articles presentation at 11:00 am
Parents are welcome to join their children as they present their finished work.
Thursday: Logic and Board Game Day
More logic. Children are invited to bring in their puzzles and other board games to share with their classmates.
Friday: Ancient Egyptian Day
Dress up like a god/goddess/king/pharaoh. Costumes should be made from materials already in your home. Use old sheets and cardboard. Be creative and have fun! Students will be expected to give a brief presentation on their god. No written work is required.
**Optional: Students are welcome to bring in an ancient Egyptian food (research on your own!) or a holiday-themed dessert for Friday!
