A Scientific Environment
Students have been creating terrestrial and aquatic environments to demonstrate how organisms depend on each other for survival. The first environment was created with a terrarium. The plants that began to thrive were corn, radishes, barley, and clover. The science notebooks became filled with drawings of plants sprouting.
Goldfish have now entered the classrooms and they have been a focus for the afternoon observations. This week, a hatchery will be introduced into the classrooms. Brine shrimp will be thriving, and the rules of tolerance will be tested.
Using reading strategies of determining importance and examining non-fiction texts, using microscopes to examine the aquatic water and plants in the terrarium, and learning new vocabulary have all been a part of our afternoons in 4A and 4B!
