This week we will be designing our own zoo! Complete each day and send me a picture, dojo message, dojo portfolio, or email with your work.(Esta semana estaremos diseñando nuestro zoológico. Completa cada dia y enviame un mensaje en Dojo, Dojo Portafolio o envialo a mi correo electronico.)


Monday- A zoo needs animals. Pick four small animals. You will be making a place for them to live. They all need to have an area between 16 square feet but no larger than 36 square feet. Draw or tell me the dimensions (sides) or your rectangles for each animal. Hint: multiplication. (Lunes – Un zoológico necesita animales. Elige cuatro animales pequeños . Harás un lugar para que vivan. Todos necesitan tener un área entre 16 pies cuadrados pero no más grande que 36 pies cuadrados. Dibuja o dime las dimensiones (lados) o tus rectángulos para cada animal. Pista: multiplicación.)

Tuesday– Now let’s find the area for two  medium sized animals. They need more space. They need an area of 60 or more. Draw or tell me the dimensions (sides) or your rectangles for each animal. Hint: think about how multiplication is the same as repeated addition. How many times you add the same number is how many rows. The number you keep adding is how many columns. (Ahora busquemos el área para dos  animales de tamaño mediano . Necesitan más espacio. Necesitan un área de 60 o más. Dibuja o dime las dimensiones (lados) o tus rectángulos para cada animal. Sugerencia: piense cómo la multiplicación es lo mismo que la suma repetida. La cantidad de veces que agrega el mismo número es la cantidad de filas. El número que sigue sumando es cuántas columnas).

Wednesday– Now let’s feed them! Each small animal gets two scoops of food. Each medium sized animal gets three scoops of food. How many scoops do you need to fill the whole zoo each day? For the week. Hint: If you can’t solve with numbers or number sentences, draw it out to help you. There are seven days in a week. (Ahora vamos a darles de comer! Cada animal pequeño recibe dos cucharadas de comida. Cada animal de tamaño mediano recibe tres cucharadas de comida. ¿Cuántas cucharadas necesitas para llenar todo el zoológico cada día? Para la semana. Sugerencia: Si no puede resolver con números u oraciones numéricas, dibujalo para ayudarte. Hay siete días en la semana.
