Academic Vocabulary:

  • Compare and contrast: identifying and analyzing what is similar (compare) and different (contrast), focusing on differences between the two structures and how those affect the meaning of the text.
  • Firsthand: accounts come from direct observation or firsthand experiences (ex: journals, diaries, newspaper accounts are beneficial when discerning point of view from time periods in history)
  • Secondhand: accounts come from someone who didn’t experience it (ex: textbook, on-line texts)

Writing: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

Math: Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.4 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.

Science: Ecosystem dynamics, functioning, and resilience

  • What happens to ecosystems when the environment changes?

When the environment changes in ways that affect a place’s physical characteristics, temperature, or availability of resources, some organisms survive and reproduce, others move to new locations, yet others move into the transformed environment, and some die.

Social Studies:  Identify questions economists ask in examining the United States (e.g., What is produced? How is it produced? How much is produced? Who gets what is produced? What role does the government play in the economy?).
