Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 3

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides your students with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The Weekly Reader Connection “Asteroids” includes a chart that shows how long it takes six asteroids to orbit the sun. Have students read the chart on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity. The activity instructs students to write a one-page report about one of the asteroids in the chart, using the Word Wise terms.

The Data Hunt activity asks students to answer five multiple-choice questions about the information in the chart.
