Part 1 of 4, May 13, 2020 COMPREHENSION

Please check out this video and think about the difference between theme and main idea. I also would like you to watch this brainpop video about Greek gods if you have the chance! The YouTube video is the story of King Midas for kids. Please be sure to read the story before watching the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWcJNvS0J80 https://www.brainpop.com/socialstudies/worldhistory/greekgods/​​​​​​​

You need your small wonders book and supplies to write with (whiteboard and marker, pencil and paper, or composition notebook). We will be going over the comprehension skill of "making and revising predictions." Happy Monday! 

Wind POWER in the South Bay

Here is my sample of a renewable resource poster. Use this as a sample to create a convincing illustration/diagram for your local community. Explain which source of energy is best in your opinion.
The poster could be done using colorful illustrations, lists, facts, captions, and other text features! Feel free to get creative! This activity is an optional afternoon activity. If you do complete it, I would love to see them. Send to my email or via TEAMS. 
You do NOT need a convincing paragraph; however, I included one that reviews the information from Brainpop and the text "It's All in the Wind." 
Comprehension work for May 6, 2020
This is the answer key for the two comprehension questions from May 6, 2020. Please use if the work is challenging, or if you want to review your answers. Try not to use this prior to attempting to answer on your own!
