As we head into March, we are beginning our travels around the world with our chapter over Mexico. We are discussing the government, economy, culture, and history of our neighbor to the south.
In science, we are on our second chapter of chemistry, which covers using energy and heat, along with the different forms that energy can take. We are also discussing the different forms of energy resources, both renewable and nonrenewable.

Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and a fantastic New Year!
In Geography, we are still working on the states and capitals, but we are now learning about the physical geography, history, culture, and government and economics of the United States.
We wasted no time in Science diving into our new chapter. We have now started our unit on Chemistry. For the next couple of weeks, we will be learning and discussing the foundations of chemistry, including matter, atoms, substances, mixtures, and chemical equations.
Geography and Science
November 29, 2016
During the last several weeks in Geography, we have studied culture, government, economy, climate, weather, and natural resources. In the next couple of weeks, we will be starting our tour around the world. We will start off with the United States. While studying our own beautiful country, we will look at the physical geography, culture, history, and government. By the end of the United States chapter, the students will also be able to recognize each state by looking at a map and be able to identify the capital for each state.
In Science, we are coming to the end of our human anatomy unit. Currently, we are studying the digestive and nervous systems, but the students have also learned about the muscular, skeletal, integumentary, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. In the next couple of weeks, we will start our shark dissection and the students will be able to compare our organ systems to the organ systems of a shark.
