We are Learning...
Math: We are learning about data and graphs. Students will learn how to record data and use it to make multiple types of graphs.
Writing: We will be learning how to write various poems styles. At the end of the unity, students will have a complete Poetry Book. At the end of the unit, we will celebrate poetry and all of our hard work by having a poetry cafe!
Science: We will begin our unit on Engineering. Students will be asked to think like scientists in order to design a tool that meets a specific need. The materials for the tool must be reusable so they will use 21st century skills (collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking) to create innovative uses for previously used materials and objects. We will also continue with life cycles!
