Welcome back to Riverdale!!! I am so excited for the new school year and to meet all of our wonderful new 4th graders. It is going to be a great year in 4th grade science this year. We will start the first 9 weeks going over our policies and procedures and then move on to our first unit, Scientific Method (Objective 4.1). We will then dive into learning about the Earth, Moon, and Sun and their relationship with each other. The next unit is my favorite and seems to be the students as well, the Solar System. With this unit they will have a project that they will need to complete at home and bring in to share with the class. Further information on this will be sent home in the next few weeks. We will wrap up the 1st 9 weeks by starting to look at weather and different weather phenomenons. Please send me an email or call the school if you have any questions or concerns. This year we have a 4th grade Facebook page, Riverdale Elementary 4th Grade Class. Please take a moment to like the page as this is another means of finding information for the school and current activities.
