Health:  Students will differentiate between the facts and myths of exercise, discover the effects of exercise on the heart through an in class blood vessel experiment and demonstrate the importance of stretching and cooling down the body after exercise.
Math: Place Value
Music: Students are continuing to learn about rhythm and music genres
PE: Group games
Reading: Guided Reading, decoding strategies and summarizing
Science: The Solar System
