Where We Are in Place and Time is our first unit in grade 5. Our central idea is all about scientific discoveries–their impacts and how they can be viewed from different perspectives. To start off the unit, we began by doing some science. Students built boats and learned how they could improve their boats to make pennies and yen float. They learned about Archimedes and his discoveries about displacement and buoyancy. Great learning through construction.
