In math, we are beginning to do some work on ratios and rates. This is a totally new concept to these 5th graders, so an anchor chart was definitely in order!

Then, we began a mini-unit on mysteries! We are reading The Westing Game (which is a semi-mystery novel), so I wanted to throw in some elements of mystery as well. We will be doing a few activities here and there as we read the novel, and the kids are so thrilled! If you have any suggestions for activities or lessons in a mystery unit, please feel free to share! I am still in search of some ideas.

My students saw my new Math Mystery Detective Task Cards on my desk and are itching to start them. Great cross-curricular connection!
My students and I tweaked the definitions a bit, but I got the list of elements from THIS website. I'm not sure if that's the original source, but if you know what is, I'm happy to link to it!
I hope to pop back in this week to share a few activities my group of 3rd graders did to support perimeter and area!
