The goal of this this unit is for students to understand the meaning and method for division calculations in which the divisor is a decimal number. Students will use calculations of whole numbers and the base-10 numeration system as a basis for thinking about and generalizing division to calculations when the divisor is a decimal number.
Language Arts Our next PYP unit this year is Where We Are in Place and Time. During this unit we will be exploring the effects of migration and immigration on communities, cultures, and individuals. We will be looking at reasons for migration and immigration and how patterns and boundaries affect these issues.
The novel that we will be studying duing this unit is Esperanza Rising which is a widely assigned book in middle school classes because students respond well to the challenges faced by the novel’s young protagonist. The novel speaks to the American immigrant experience and is an excellent literary work to use during our first formal debate which deals with immigration topics.
