Fourth grade is a year in which students are learning more and more about taking responsibility for their work. Students learn perseverance as they tackle increasingly difficult math concepts such as long multiplication and division.
FVCA fourth grade students will participate in the "Rocks and Minerals" unit through their science coursework. In this unit, students perform tests on their own set of 12 minerals and learn to identify each one. A field trip to Ledgeview Caves in Chilton is also a highlight of this unit. In addition, students will integrate the science unit with writing and geography as they write to each of the 50 states in hopes that they will send back a sample of their state mineral.
