    Today’s ELA Work Checklist (75 minutes to complete)

    I can... Select and apply context clues (e.g., word, phrase, sentence, and paragraph clues) and text features to determine the meanings of unknown words. (5.RV.2.1)

    1. In Google Classroom, click on the assignment called Instruction Video: Trekking Across the World, Day 1. Watch the video to listen to the Google slides for today's trek across our first three countries being read aloud and explained. (8 min)
    2. In Google Classroom, click on the assignment called Trekking Across the World: Peru. This will open up your very first work as context clues detectives (disguised as tourists, of course). Your tour guide through Peru uses some very strange words that are unfamiliar to you. Use your context clues skills to make an inference as to what each of the strange underlined words mean. After you have finished your context clues word, watch the Nat Geo for kids video on Peru. Oh, and don’t forget to add your travel token to your postcard! (22 min)
    3. In Google Classroom, select the assignment called Trekking Across the World: Germany. As you head to Germany, there are so many sites to see. Before you head out, you decide to check out the reviews online. In each of the tourist’s reviews, there are missing words. You must read carefully and use the context clues around the blanks to determine which word correctly goes there. Drag and drop the correct word from the words bank to where it belongs in the review. Be careful detectives, *cough cough* I mean tourists, there are some extra words that do not belong anywhere. After you have finished deciphering your travel reviews, watch the short video on Germany and add your travel token to your Germany postcard. (22 min)
    4. In Google Classroom, click on the assignment called Trekking Across the World: Kenya. Welcome to Kenya! Here, you will go on an incredible safari. Your tour guides gives you a brochure about it. You open your pen to take some notes and your pen explodes leaving ink blots everywhere. No biggie right? Wrong! The ink is covering several words. Good thing we are amazing context clues detectives. Read around the ink blots to decide on a word that would make sense there. Then type the word in the blanks on the right hand side of the slide. After you have finished, watch the short video we found on Kenya. Oh, and add your final travel token for today! (22 min)
