This week we will begin our 3rd Quarter Ocean Animal research project. Your child has selected the ocean animal that they would like to study and report on. The rubric for which they will be graded on is attached and will be posted on our website. The due date for the completion of this assignment will be Friday, February 3, 2017.
Science Logs will be sent home to use for recording research information. This log will be used daily for students to record what they discover at school and at home. Please make sure that this log comes back and forth to school. Students account information will be on a sticker in their Science Log.
On our class website, there are links for resources http://msyoungh3.weebly.com that can be helpful. Just go to the homework tab–curriculum – H3 Projects/Resource. Scroll down to find the Resource links.
The research process will include. First, an introduction to ocean animals by previewing books and watching videos to select an animal to research. Second, gathering information using books, magazines, articles, and on-line resources. Third, they will write a report and create a Weebly website to report their findings. All websites are password protected. The password is: (student’s sticker)
A sample Website can be found at: h3msy.weebly.com. I’m excited to see what everyone will discover as they complete their research. Have fun as explore, discover, and learn together. Enjoy!
