In our Social Studies class the grade four students are thinking about exploration and what that means. The grade five curriculum focus is on "the past". The students are beginning with the Middle Ages. We will talk about the Feudal System, Castles, and Knights.
In math we are talking about big numbers and where we might see them. I suggest playing the place value games on our number sense page to help reinforce some of the concepts learned. Try 'convert between place values'.
