4th Grade - January 2018
 

Happy January 4th Grade!

We hope you are settled back into your classroom routines and are on track to study all about weathering, erosion, energy and how it is transferred this month. Beginning this month, the standards listed are linked to their explanations in CPALMS. We hope this is useful as you unpack the benchmarks to build standards-based science lessons with your team.

We hope you enjoy some of the activities that we have featured and will share the amazing things you are doing in your classroom with us on Twitter @CollierScience.

Happy New Year to everyone! We start the New Year in Social Studies by learning about, and celebrating, change in history. Students will learn about significant people and events that created change and how those changes continue to impact our lives today. One significant person of study, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had a great deal of influence on American society beginning in the 1950s and 1960s and was a catalyst for change during the Civil Rights Movement. Students will celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 15th and then continue to learn about technological advancements that allowed for future growth in Florida.
