Welcome to the 6th week of school! The year is flying by. Here is a quick look at the Science concepts we are covering over the month of October (stay tuned for more posts with other subjects!):
We are learning all about plants this month. We will be growing seeds in the classroom and collecting samples outside. Students will be making and recording observations/predictions. They will be estimating measurements. Students will be identifying patterns. We will be working with small groups and individually.
*If you have a green thumb, or any special knowledge that you would like to share, please contact me. Also, if you have any seeds that you would like to donate we will find a way to use them!
Some I can statements for students:
I can identify and investigate life needs of plants.
I can describe how plants are affected by their growing conditions.
I can identify and describe the parts of a plant (and tell their general function).
I can observe and describe changes that occur during the life cycle of a plant.
I can describe the way in which plants are important to living things and our environment.
I can identify plant parts that provide humans with useful products.
I can describe how to prepare products made from plants.
I can describe how our supply of useful plants is replenished.
