English: English students are busy analyzing
poetry and writing original poems. We will soon begin a unit on classical
mythology in which we will be writing a compare/contrast paper.
As usual, we will continue working on grammar and sentence structure.
A reminder that the TAAS reading test will
be given on April 25, and the Stanford 9 test will be administered the
last week of February.
Math: We are actively engaged
in geometry, having recently completed the "design a mall" project and
now involved in a school-wide problem, "How many tetrahedra will fit into
our classroom?" We still have circles, spheres, cones and cylinders
to explore, as well as the Pythagorean theorem.
Science: We will be learning about the
theory of plate tectonics to explain what causes earthquakes and volcanos.
Texas History: In the next several
weeks we plan to explore Texas geography and weather. We will also
spend time focusing on maps and map reading skills.
