A RECAP OF OUR WEEK & A GLIMPSE AT NEXT WEEK
Science – Animals
Each student chose an animal to learn more about. We are currently learning about how animals use their external parts to help them survive, grown and meet their needs. We are also looking at patterns in behavior of parents & their young which help the offspring survive. Students are learning how to do research and complete a graphic organizer. We will also be focusing on Animals during Computer Class with Mrs. Bailey and Library with Mrs. Howorth. (Information was sent home in your child’s blue take-home folder on Wednesday. The same information can be accessed under Links & Resources.)
