Go to Google classroom and join my class if you haven't already (Baer kids too) using this code: klopgg7 Here you will find all of the work that is also in the packet that you can complete digitally. I will continue to update with fun things I find for you to do at home. There will be videos posted there to watch as well.

Math:

Complete the attached math worksheets on measurement and data. You may also access them on my google classroom page. I am trying to embed links for online practice, as well as have copies you can edit through google slides.

***Go to the county school's website @ TCSOS.US to access Brain Pop. Follow these directions: TCSOS.US> ELO tab> Resources> Brain Pop> Math> Geometry & Measurement:Watch the videos on both Customary Units and Metric Units. Take the "review' quiz after the video.

Go to “Auto Scored Quizzes”, select the operation you’d like to practice (multiplication and division facts are recommended), and then work your way up beginning with the pretest, and then move onto the next number set. This is GREAT practice, and doesn’t take too long either. ****Please use this daily!! It is amazing how much faster and accurate you get on your facts when you practice!

Watch the video called, “Artifacts Past: Rancho Life in Early California 1834-1580” on California Streaming. I will post a link to google classroom to access the video. You can also visit the county website and follow these steps:tcsos.us > go to ELO > go to > Resources > go to California Streaming. In the search bar, type in the name of the video. Ignore the “group” directions from the video. Watch carefully to understand what each artifact from the video is and what it was used for on the Ranchos. Write your answers down on a sheet of paper or you could type them on a google doc and share it to your teacher.

The county website: tcsos.us has daily lessons under their ELO tab if you are feeling like you want more to do.

ART:

“Ocean Wash” Draw an underwater ocean scene. Include the following: at least one mammal, a reptile, different color and different sized and kinds of fish, a school of fish, and plants. Optional: coral, jellies, rocky shore creatures, sunken ship, treasure box. Color with CRAYON. Be sure to press firmly with the crayon to make solid color, don’t use too much blue. Once you are completely finished coloring with crayon, carefully paint over the entire picture with diluted blue paint. (Watercolor works well, if you have tempera paint mix a little paint with a cup of water) This will be your “wash”. It’s a good idea to do the painting portion outside. The wax will resist the paint and the color will show through. If you want something to appear white, use a white crayon. If you can, take a picture of your ocean wash and email it to me!

Fiesta supplies: Your next packet will have directions for the various activities we would have done together at our fiesta. If you are able to get the following materials between now and then, you will be set. If you can’t get the materials please contact YOUR teacher.
