Science Project

Science Project
Energy-Efficient Home
Due Monday, Dec 5th
First Check: Nov 28th

Design and construct an energy-efficient home that uses renewable energy as much as possible.
Please follow the guidelines listed below:
  • Work could be individual or in pairs. So, you can work alone or with one other student in grade 5.
  • Work on the design and construction will be done at home not in school. Time at school could be used to ask questions or discuss ideas and suggestions.
  • Find information you need in your textbook, other books, online, ask parents, etc.
  • Use any kind of materials to make your home, but make sure it is of moderate size and that you can easily carry it to school. The only materials not allowed are glass and sharp dangerous parts.
  • You don’t have to use the real materials used in building homes: for example, use clear plastic bag for windows instead of glass, use cardboard for walls, construction paper for solar panels, etc.
  • Label the parts that are helping your home be energy efficient: example, “Triple-paned windows that trap the heat inside”, “Solar Panels to provide electricity”, “Rubber strip around the front door to prevent the cold air from coming in”, etc.
  • Prepare an oral presentation 3-4 minutes discussing your home: how your design helps to conserve energy, materials used, challenges you faced and how you could improve it in the future.
  • First check is on Monday,  November 28th, and it will be marked. For the “First Check”, you should show me that you have started working on your project by providing one of the following:

- a colored sketch/drawing of your home on your Science Journal
- a short description of the features in your home on your Journal
- a list of the materials needed for your home on your Journal
- email me a picture of yourself working on your project.

Enjoy Your Time!

Math Updates - Tr. Ahlam

Dear Parents,
Asalamu Alaikum
I hope this message finds you well and in good health.
During the month of September, students are exploring patterns and methods of organizing and displaying information about patterns. They will now apply their understanding of patterns to other concepts such as money, multiplication, and division. By the end of this unit your child will be able to identify, extend, create, and solve problems that use patterns. They will also be asked to use different organizational methods to display their information, such as tables, and charts.
Throughout this time, you can engage your child in activities such as:
  • Your child can look for patterns he/she sees in daily life, around the house, and in the community. Make a list of these places and create a chart to display them
  • Your child can create hi/her own counting pattern, involving all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division)
  • Your child can create an artistic 2-dimensional pattern or a 3-dimensional structure.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your help and cooperation in this matter.

Ahlam Rashid, (Math Teacher)
