We finished our unit on recycling. The children did very well on the assessment and extended learning activities. We are starting our Solid Earth Unit. The children will be looking at Earth materials that occur in nature such as, rocks, minerals, soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere.
We will be using the following vocabulary: boulder, earth materials, rock, clay, sand, gravel, soil, texture, color, particle size, mineral, solid rock (sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rock).
They are coming home with a note to bring in a soil sample for class on Wednesday. Thanks!
