In science we are studying organisms and their environments. We are studying both complete and incomplete metamorphosis. We are also going to learn about plant and animal adaptations. In addition, we are reviewing concepts for our upcoming STAAR test and reinforcing our understanding of vocabulary terms from throughout the year.
Reading & Social Studies
In Social Studies, we will be finishing our study of Manifest Destiny and westward expansion. Students will begin to learn more about the diverse people of the west and their way of life.
