Science: ‚Äč Chapter 3 Objectives
Students will classify plants into major groups, such as flowering and nonflowering, based on physical characteristics
Students will develop models that describe how leaves help plants live, grow, and process food
Students will use models that describe how roots and stems take in, transport, or store water and nutrients that the plant need to grow
Students will communicate how plants reproduce using seeds and cones
Students will develop and use models to describe how plants change during their life cycles


ELA: Module 2B-Objectives
In this module, students will use literacy skills to build expertise-using reading, writing, listening, speaking, and collaborative skills to build and share deep knowledge about a topic.  Specifically, students will seek evidence of culture, which can be thought of as the story of a group of people constructed through the generations; it can be evidenced through ancient and modern-day customs and traditions.  Students will read Dragon of the Red Dawn, a book set in ancient Japan.
