Yesterday we reviewed the plants parts and functions and began taking notes about Photosynthesis using BrainPop videos on the iPads. Your child should have two notes sheets glued into their science notebooks if you'd like to check out what we're learning. Today, we read an article and started a foldable in our notebooks to help us better understand how each of the plant parts play a role in the processes of photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration. We will be having a vocabulary quiz this Friday 4/24 based on the vocabulary we have been talking about this past week. Just a reminder that we will also be taking our field trip this Thursday!
Vocabulary: glucose, H2O, Chlorophyll, Chloroplast, Xylem, Photosynthesis, Sunlight (Solar Energy), CO2, Phloem, Oxygen, Stomata, and Cellular Respiration, mitochondria
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
