The Third Grade Team
We will review strategies for identifying cause and effect relationships so that I can identify how one even leads or connects to the next. I'll know I have it when I can use cause and effect relationships to infer what will happen next.
Integrated Social Studies and Writer's Workshop:
We will analyze characteristics of planets so that I can understand what makes each planet different. I will know I have it when I can create an invention that will help us overcome an obstacle with living on a different planet.
