Reading & Science Integration

We will begin our research unit by learning to research severe weather. The students will be completing an independent research project in class. This will go hand in hand with what we are learning in Science. Expect lots of questions about weather over the next several weeks!


Also, there should be a study guide for weather instruments in your child's binder. Have them begin learning these instruments!
