Learning Targets and Topic Overview
Our Learning Targets "short term goals"
These are brief targets for students to use in self assessment for our targeted goals. They are posted up in our room and we talk about them daily. I encourage you to use them as topics of conversation with your children.
Unit 9 : Organisms and the Environment
For this unit, students will explore and learn about organisms and their environment. Students will learn about and understand that living organisms within an ecosystem interact with one another and with their environment. Students will learn about the needs of producers, consumers, and their interactions with each other through a food chain. Finally, students will learn about the flow of energy through food webs, beginning with the Sun, and predict how changes in the ecosystem affect the food web such as a fire in a forest.
