LITERACY

For the rest of the week , I would like you to write the story of 'The Paper Bag Princess' as if you were the dragon. You are going to tell it from the dragon's point of view. It's good to read a story written in the first person. It allows the reader to get inside the character's head and watch the  story unfold through the character's eyes.

Be imaginative. Recreate the story your way.

Think about your story structure.

Beginning - introducing the character and setting

Events

Ending - happy? sad? surprising? shocking? a cliffhanger? a reflection? a twist?

HAVE FUN

 

SCIENCE

Some materials will dissolve (soluble ) and some will not dissolve (insoluble).

I would like you to investigate which materials are soluble (dissolve in water ).

Today, ask your parents if you can set up an experiment to test if these materials will dissolve - sugar, coffee, pepper, flour, salt, cooking oil.

Work scientifically.

How will you  make the test fair?

What will you keep the same? What will you change?

How will you record what you observe? 

Tomorrow, I would like you to write your scientific report.
