Science -Next Generation Science Standards

Our first unit of science will focus on making observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are alike, but not exactly alike, their parents. We will read texts, make explorations, and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive. This is approximately a 6-8 week unit.
