Big Idea:The concept of fossilization can be challenging for students. It requires some sense of time movement, changes in the earth, and living organisms dying and leaving behind something after millions of years. This lesson will help build background knowledge.
Big Idea:This session will engage students in compiling information, observations, and investigation data about life cycles, structures and functions, and care of living animals, in order to present to our first graders. This is a performance assessment.
Big Idea:Students have a clear understanding at this point of magnetic force and magnetic and non magnetic items. Today they will explore using that knowledge to create magnets out of non magnetic objects.
Big Idea:After weeks of research and writing, students are ready to publish their work! They will design and draft each chapter, add text features, and color their final product. We work together to bind it in a book format.
