Facts in Five is a GREAT game for those who like to challenge their minds, compete with their friends, and have fun. That’s pretty much everyone, right?
This past month, we have learned some great facts from five different sources. Special guests visited our class this month, both in person and via Skype, to share scientific, historical, and cinematic information with us that added to our understanding and enjoyment of novels we have read. In addition, we began writing our own informational texts, again inspired by our novels, to broaden our knowledge base in scientific areas.
Here are five categories each with some information that helps us learn more about books that we read.
What type of rock decays underground to form a sinkhole? (Click on the photo below to find out!)

What type of plagiarism is common and most severe in intent?
