This week, we will jump back into our science curriculum and begin Unit F, Chapter 1, "Motion - Forces at Work". With this chapter, we will learn about motion, the effects forces have on objects, and examples of forces in nature. Students will be given a quiz from the book at the end of this chapter. The following week, we will move to Chapter 2 "Simple Machines". Students will be given an open book test over this chapter along with doing some super fun experiments to round out the year.
