In Science we began a scientific study of plants and animals. We will be investigating several ways to propagate new plants, including growing plants from a seed, bulb, stem and root. The scientific thinking processes that the children will be using in their investigations include observing structures of plants, communicating discoveries orally, in writing, and through drawing, comparing the development of plants over time, and organizing their findings in order to draw conclusions about how different plants reproduce. We will be making a terrarium and comparing the needs of plants and animals. We will also be going outdoors to plant in the greenhouse and investigate the plants and animals in our school yard.
In Social Studies we will focus on family.
