    Good morning friends!

    I hope you had a nice weekend with your family and were able to get outside to play in that beautiful weather we had on Friday and Saturday.  I have been walking Benji a lot to give me an excuse to get out and walk.  Otherwise, I did a lot of baking, reading, and put together some puzzles.

    Overview: The Revolutionary War split the people of the American colonies into two groups: the Patriots and the Loyalists. Essential Question: How do Patriots and Loyalists compare and contrast to each other?

    Explanation: Today you will review the differences between Patriots and Loyalists at the start of the American Revolution.

    Things to know:

    · Patriots were people who wanted the American colonies to gain their independence from Britain. They wanted their own country called the United States.

    · People in the Americas felt they weren't being treated fairly by the British. They were being taxed without any say or representation in the British government. Soon cries for "liberty" were being heard throughout the colonies. The patriots wanted freedom from British rule.

    · Not everyone who lived in the American colonies wanted to break away from the British. There were many people who wanted to stay part of Britain and remain British citizens. These people were called loyalists.

    · Many people felt that their lives would be better off if the colonies remained under British rule. Some of these people were simply afraid to go up against the might of the British army. Others had business interests in England and knew that English trade was important to the economy. Still others thought that British rule would be better than patriot rule.

    Tasks:

    (1)   Watch youtube on the Patriots vs the Loyalists (4:47) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJOIlC2HMQY

     

    (2) Take graded quiz and email to teacher

    (3) Choose the side of a Patriot or Loyalist and then write a letter to the other side persuading them to join your side.

    How is this assignment turned into the teacher?

    · After you take the graded quiz on Brainpop, email it to your teacher (if you want!)

    · If you choose to type your letter, type it using Office365 and then share it with your teacher.

    · If you choose to write your letter – neatly on lined paper – you may take a picture of it and email it to your teacher or you may save it in your Grab Bag to share with your teacher when we are back in school. Make sure your name and date are on your letter for when you hand it in if you decide not to type it or write and send a picture of it to your teacher.

    Overview:  Prime Numbers / Composite Numbers / Factors / Multiples  

    Explanation:  Today you will create a set of number cards.  You will also review prime and composite numbers, as well as complete activities using your knowledge of factors and multiples.   

      

    Things to know: 

    ·       The following definitions can be used while completing the tasks for today. 

    o   prime number – A prime number has only two different factors, 1 and itself. 

    o   composite number – A composite number has more than 2 different factors. 

    o   factor – 12 can be divided exactly by 2. So, 2 is a factor of 12. 

    o   multiple – A multiple of a number is the product of the number and any other whole number except zero.  

     

    Tasks: Use the worksheets that Mrs. Rothman sent your parents.  

     

    *Start by refreshing your memory on Prime Numbers by watching this BrainPop video* 

    ·       Create a set of number cards.   

    o   These cards will be used for various activities, so save them from day to day.   

    o   As a suggestion, you could use 10 index cards, 10 post it notes, or even 10 sheets of similarly sized paper to make your number cards.   

    o   Place one digit on each card (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)  

    ·       Prime/Composite: 

    o   Shuffle your set of number cards.   

    §  Flip over one card at a time.   

    §  Determine if the number on the card is a prime number of a composite number.   

    o   Complete the PRIME/COMPOSITE T-Chart worksheet page.   

    §  You may develop numbers on your own or use your number cards to create number to sort into each category. 

    ·       Factors: 

    o   Locate 5 numbers in your house.  Each number must be a two digit number.  Fill in the Factors Chart for all 5 numbers.   

    ·       Multiples: 

    o   Complete the Multiples worksheet by writing the next multiples of a chosen number.
