This week we are learning:
Science and Social Studies
Natural resources such as rocks, soil, plants, water, and air occur through natural processes in, on, and above the Earth’s surface.
Manmade resources come from the Earth but are modified in some way for our use.
Manmade resources include materials such as glass, plastic, fabric, lumber, and paper.
We use tools such as rain gauges, wind vanes, and thermometers to gather weather information.
We can record weather data in charts, tables, and graphs.
We use weather and climate information to make decisions about clothing, activities, or transportation.
Individual Word Sorts
Spiderwick Chronicles Book 4
Have a wonderful week,
