Conducting Our Experiment
In writer's workshop this week, our young scientists will conduct ANOTHER experiment! Student scientists will learn how to write an effective conclusion, detailed results as well as learn how to compare those results to that of another group of scientists. Lastly, after comparing these results they will then experiment once more to gather more data based on what they have learned thus far.
2.MD.9 Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
This week, in keeping with the standard from last week, students will learn about another type of graph, the line plot. Students will learn that line plots are created when data is recorded in a bar format using "X's" that are all the same size. Check out this video about line plots from Learnzillion!
Science & Social Studies
In science, students will learn about their last animal's life cycle, the butterfly. Students will learn about the four stages of an egg, a pupa, a chrysalis (not a cocoon!) and lastly, an adult butterfly. We hope to see some of these on our field trip to Jordan Lake on Wednesday, April 20th!
