Multiplying by 5

Multiplying by 5 is counting by 5 as many times as the number by which you are multiplying, so:

5 = 5 x 1 = 5

10 = 5 x 2 = 5 + 5

15 = 5 x 3 = 10 + 5

20 = 5 x 4 = 15 + 5

25 = 5 x 5 = 20 + 5

30 = 5 x 6 = 25 + 5

35 = 5 x 7 = 30 + 5

40 = 5 x 8 = 35 + 5

45 = 5 x 9 = 40 + 5

50 = 5 x 10 = 45 + 5

And here is each number multiplied by 5:

5 x 1 = 5

5 x 2 = 10

5 x 3 = 15

5 x 4 = 20

5 x 5 = 25

5 x 6 = 30

5 x 7 = 35

5 x 8 = 40

5 x 9 = 45

5 x 10 = 50

If you look at the multiplication, you can see that you can count off to by how much you have to multiply 5 and that will be your result:

Venus

Venus is the second planet from the Sun and it is 67 million miles away from our star. It’s year is 225 Earth days. It’s day is actually longer – it’s 243 Earth days. Venus spins backwards, possibly because it was hit by an asteroid at some point in the past. Venus’ mass is 82% that of Earth.

Venus is the hottest planet in the Solar System, even though it’s not the closest to the Sun. It’s temperature is 850F. Venus’ atmosphere is full of a greenhouse gas called carbon dioxide, which creates a thick cloud around the surface. It traps the heat, making the planet get hotter and hotter.

The surface of Venus is rocky, like that of Mercury and Earth. However, there is no water in there. It’s so hot on this planet that it’s covered by active volcanoes and there are rivers of lava flowing across it.

Venus was named after Roman goddess of love and beauty.

Ancient Greece – culture

Ancient Greek culture created ideas which we still use today. Here are some of the most important ones:

Democracy – the Greeks were the first one to come up with the idea of a citizen and that every citizen had a right to participate in making decisions for their country. Back then, being citizen meant being a free, native-born, land-owning man.

Public education – boys went to school starting when they were 7 years old. They didn’t go for many years, but they did learn how to read, write and count.

Philosophy – philosophers today still follow the way Ancient Greeks used to think and quote them frequently.

Theater and literature – Ancient Greeks built wonderful theaters where you could hear everything that was said on stage in the entire theater, even though they didn’t have microphones or any other technology we use now. My mom says she tested it and it still works! Isn’t that awesome? Greeks developed structure of plays that is still used these days. One of the most famous writers in Greece was Homer, who wrote the Odyssey. Greeks used to write and collect books. They even built a great library knows as Library of Alexandria.

Olympic games – the Greeks used to organize the Olympic Games. Athletes competed to see who was the best and it was a tradition that all wars had to stop when the competition was going on.

Trivia
