In Mythic Hero, we will read and analyze Greek myths and look at the concept of "heroes." Students will compare Greek heroes to modern-day heroes, and they will even create their own mythical heroes! In addition, students will:
- develop critical thinking skills
- increase understanding of the elements of literature
- develop creative writing skills
- develop an understanding of Greek culture
Factors, Multiples, and Left Overs
In this M3 unit, students focus on a deeper understanding of multiplication and division to help develop their sense of numbers. They encounter a range of different problem situations and representations and learn about the relationship between multiplication and division and the properties associated with these operations. Fourth graders will continue with the next level of Hands-on Equations this session, too.
