Hello, my name is Ms. Goularte (Rm. 29) and I am going to be teaching your child’s Enrichment rotation. Enrichment is going to encompass many topics that enhance our learning and understanding of Science, Technology, and Social Studies. Some topics include Nutrition, Coding, Digital Citizenship, Geography (specifically the United States), and Science Camp Prep.
Our first unit of the year will be Nutrition. We will be using booklets from the Dairy Council of California (https://www.healthyeating.org/) to go over the five main food groups, serving sizes, and types of physical activity. Your child will have homework that requires them to record what they eat and what type of exercise they do over the course of three separate days. It will be stressed in class that each of our bodies are different and require different amounts of food and exercise. The main goal of this course is for children to understand more about how their bodies consume and use energy in order to keep us healthy!
5th Grade Standards addressed include:
