Here’s what we are learning this week:
Reading: Students will be able to:
Obtain, evaluate, & communicate information on how fossils provide evidence of past organisms.
- Construct an argument from observations of fossils (authentic or reproductions) to communicate how they serve as evidence of past organisms & environments in which they lived
- Develop a model to describe the sequence & conditions required for an organism to become fossilized.
Math: Students will use their knowledge of measurement to estimate liquid volumes and masses.
Writing: Students will work on using passages to write narrative, information, and opinion pieces. This week will integrate our learning on fossils and write an informational constructed response.
Transdisciplinary Theme: How the World Works
Central Idea: Cycles create environmental changes.
