Young 5’s -Finish making and coloring weather wheel
I can use descriptive word to explain the weather, participate in a weather skit song, and color a daily weather wheel.
I can orally explain today’s weather by using my weather wheel.
Today’s weather feels_________________.
Vocabulary: weather, today, seasons, temperature, hot, cold, warm, freezing, sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy, stormy, windy
I can learn more details on how to describe the weather by following along with the Mystery Science activity “Have You Ever Watched a Storm?”.
I can draw a picture describing today’s weather. In my picture I will make sure I draw what I am wearing and how the sky and ground look.
I can orally explain using sentence stems:
The weather is ________________.
I am wearing ________________ because it is __________ outside.
I can see __________________________.
I can demonstrate knowledge of the moon by observing a movable model of the moon and watching a brainpop video.
I can draw a picture and write a sentence to explain at least 2 new facts that I learned about our moon today.
I learned that the moon _____________________________________________.
The moon also__________________________________.
Second Grade-(Ms. Earle’s Class)
I can demonstrate how landforms form or change by experimenting in a “Cookie Weathering and Erosion” lab using chocolate chip cookies(landform/rock), straw(wind), toothpick(animals and plants changing rock), and dropper(rain).
I can draw or write to explain my observations of weathering and erosion during the “Cookie Lab”.
Vocabulary: landforms, mountain, plataeu, mesa, hill, plain, volcano,beaches, island, peninsula, weathering, erosion
Second Grade-(Younce and Patterson’s classes)
I can demonstrate how landforms form or change by experimenting with an erosion lab where we let rain fall(cup with holes filled with water) on a created landform made of sand.
I can draw and write to explain my observations of what happened to the landform after water had been raining on it.
*Draw a before and after picture of landform and explain the changes.
Vocabulary: landforms, mountain, plataeu, mesa, hill, plain, volcano,beaches, island, peninsula, weathering, erosion, deposition
Third Grade-(Continuation of last week)
I can demonstrate comprehension of various climates by color coding a world map according to climate zones(Polar/cold, Temperate,Warm, Tropical) and picking a place I would travel to for the climate.
I can draw or write to explain what I should pack and wear if I was traveling to ________________.
The different climate zones are_______________________.

“STEM Activity”- Alien Space Lander
Planning and sharing of plans day! Next week create and test day:)
(Activity takes 2 class periods)
I can demonstrate application of the Engineering Process by creating an alien space lander with a shock-absorber and stabilizer that can land 2 aliens (marshmallows) safely onto Earth(using only materials provided) following the engineering steps: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve, and Present.
I can draw or write to explain my groups plan to create a space lander and explain any improvements needed.
Vocabulary: Stabilizer, Shock-Absorber
