Here are some ideas for creating good endings to your stories!
Here's a game from BrainPop that explores fractions on a number line. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Here is another Studyjam. This one is about fractions and mixed numbers. Have a look!

We live in a diverse world. Observe our 'newly discovered', recycled 'organisms' below? Are they living things? (Imagine they are real) How do you know? How do they meet their needs? How are they alike and different? How would you classify them? 
Observe the organism below. How would you classify this organism? How do you know? How does it adapt to survive in its environment?

Here is a link to facts about Iceland from Time for Kids. Where is Iceland located? Can you find its longitude and latitude? What is its climate? What is pictured in the image below? Click on 'A Day in the Life' and see what it is like to live there. Stay tuned for much more!
We are going to be learning about the country of Iceland for International Days this week. Iceland is often referred to as the land of fire and ice. Watch the video below to see why! Can you make any connections between Iceland and the country you are researching for your report?

Here is a youtube video for an additional explanation on how to place fractions on a number line. Have a look if you are struggling with this concept!

For the past few months we have been observing potato plants growing in our classroom. Are potato plants living things? How do you know? (Hint: consider the characteristics of all living things) What factors affect the growth of potatoes? ((Hint: consider what what living things need to survive) Some of the potatoes are growing better than others. Make an inference as to why this is happening. How do plants connect to our lives? How do other organisms use plants? What do you think would happen if there were no more plants on Earth?
