Our class is beginning our final unit of the year, out Life Science unit. Our focus is plant and animal life cycles. We we will be learning about and comparing and contrasting the life cycles of many different species of plants and animals. We will study how offspring inherit traits from their parents as well as learn behaviors to help them adapt and survive. The students will also be independently researching the life cycle of an animal of their choice. We will be observing the life cycles of plants and animals through videos, a field trip, and in person in the classroom. The students are very excited about our new (and final) unit!
