Well, as I sit at home and reflect on the school year, I have to say it's been an amazing year. I was a lucky teacher to have such a great bunch of kids. Be safe, play as much as you can, and have an awesome summer! See you in September!

Learning Intention:



I can create a visual that describes the basic structure of the human body systems and detail how they are connected to each other.



Criteria:



•I have displayed and described the basic structure of the respiratory, digestive, circulatory, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems on my presentation.



•I have listed how each system is connected to the other systems in the human body.



Looking Back

In this unit, you have learned:

 How your digestive system processes food to make nutrients for your cells.

 How your respiratory system takes in oxygen for your cells.

 How you circulatory system transports nutrients and oxygen throughout your body.

 How your excretory system gets rid of wastes from your cells.

 How your muscular and skeletal systems allow you to move and, with your skin, support and protect your other systems.

 How your nervous system controls other body systems

Designing a Compound Machine



In this unit, you have learned how forces affect the way that objects move, that there are six simple machines, and that simple machines can be combined to form compound machines. It is now your job to take what you have learned and create a compound machine!



Learning Intention:



I can show my understanding of simple and compound machines by creating and describing my own compound machine.



Criteria for Success:



•I have designed and built/drawn a compound machine that will make an everyday household task easier.

•I have accurately identified two or more simple machines.

•I have described why each simple machine would make the task easier.

•I have used scientific words from chapters 1-3 that explain my understanding.

•I have described why my compound machine would make the job easier.

Hi there,



The final term of Grade 5 is underway. It's been a fantastic year so far but we aren't finished yet!



We are working on finishing off simple and compound machines in science then will begin a unit on the human body. My goals for math include finishing 3 digit by 1 digit division, then get a handle on fractions and finally segue into decimals and measurement. I also wish to focus on healthy living and lifestyle choices in health and career education. We will continue classroom discussions that revolve around current events and social studies. In addition, we will continue to blend all subjects into language arts.



Report cards as it stands now, will be issued towards the end of the year. As always, please feel free to address any concerns with me via email lschade@sd57.bc.ca or by calling the school.



Thanks for your continued support.



L. Schade

Here is the list of questions that you and your classmates came up with. I am impressed with the quality of the questions in this list. It shows that you really took an honest look at the major topics covered in this forces chapter. You really showed ownership of your learning. Please remember to study the concepts and ideas of the questions and try not to memorize the answers! If you understand the concepts, the answers will be easy-shmeezy :)



Question: Explain what happens when one force is greater than another force.



Question: Give two examples of what surface texture can do to an object.



Question: There is a sled sitting at the top of a hill. What forces are acting on this sled to keep it from moving? How could the forces change? What would happen if they did?



Question: Use drawings, words, and label a diagram to show how surface texture and slope can affect the amount of force needed to ride a bike. Give two different examples.



Question: What is friction? Name three things that can happen when two surfaces rub together.



Question: If a roller skater is going up a hill and the other roller skater is on a flat road, which skater will have an easier time moving? Why?



Question: Draw an object that needs force to move. Include slope, load, surface texture, and the force.



Question: What tool can you use to measure force? How do you use it?



Question: What makes a person slide on ice?



Question: What affects the amount of force needed to move an object? Use scientific words from the chapter to explain.



Question: Which surface would be easier to run on, a gym floor or an icy sidewalk? Why?



Question: Would it take more force to move a 4L jug of milk or a loaf of bread? Why?



Question: What does equilibrium mean?



Question: What will an object do if forces are equally balanced on it?



Question: Will you move faster if you drag the load from your backpack on ice or on grass? Why?



Question: How does load affect a 1000 pound boat pulling a 1,500 pound boat? Explain.



Question: If you were to roll a medicine ball and a dodgeball down a hill at the same time, what would happen?
