What's happening in Room 6?
This week, we are reading a story called Honey Bees. We will learn all about how honey bees work together as a community. We will use the research process to write an informational piece about honey bees. Our research will come from our weekly story, a video and some other nonfiction books.
Our comprehension strategy this week is comparing and contrasting. We will compare and contrast the three different types of honey bees.
I enjoy this unit because it encourages the students to look at a problem and find unique ways to solve it. The lessons build upon one another. Once they figure out that they have to carry over their learning from each activity, the lessons become a little bit easier for them.
