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. 

  1. 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
  2. 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.
