4th grade students in Math Challenge have completed three units so far. The first chapter was Guess and Check, they had to make educated guesses and input numbers into word problems to see if they would work. Chapter 2 was entitled Draw a Picture, which required the students to create a drawing that helped them solve the problem. In chapter 3, the students were asked to create a table or chart in order to help solve the problem. Good luck Math Challenge students :)

In our 4th/5th grade Greek Mythology class we are doing two book studies : The Lightning Thief starring Percy Jackson and The Shadow Thief starring Charlotte Mielswetszki. Both books take current day characters and connect them to stories of Greek mythology.
