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 textbooks.

The article “America's Hot Spot” discusses Mount Kilauea in Hawaii. Have students read the article on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity. The activity has students make a word web with the word “hot” in the center. You may give children the Word Web worksheet (PDF file) to do this activity.

The Data Hunt activity asks students to work in a group to put together a TV news report, including local weather, local sports, and local news. The local news should include information about Mount Kilauea.
