Social Studies:

I hope you all are doing well and want you to all have a fun weekend!  Next week, I'm taking a break from the Spiral Review Booklet to let the kids read, play games and complete an activity from the Virginia Studies Weekly newspaper.  We use the actual paper copies of these sometimes at school, but I've put the online version on my new Google Classroom. I've named it Distance Learning Social Studies.  Please ask your child to log into Google Classroom and join this new class. The class code was shared via email. Please have them join this before Monday.  They will have all next week to complete the assignments.  I'm looking forward to hearing from all of my sweet kiddos!  Continue to wash your hands and stay healthy! Enjoy time with your family and I hope we can get back to normal soon.  Remember to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns.  

Science:

Choose one of the following activities.  Email me your answers.

A)  List the planets in order from the Sun.

B)  List planets by size from largest to smallest.

C)  Write a paragraph explaining why Earth is the only planet that can have life.
