Snapdragons - Third Grade Core - Lacy Kleespie
The Snapdragons will be investigating some big guiding questions this year, beginning with- What is a system? To answer this question, we are going to investigate the human machine- a machine more amazing than any machine ever invented! Students will conduct an Expert Study project during this exciting and engaging unit. In the spring, we will shift gears as we continue to explore systems, this time, with the particular focus on the question: what makes a system sustainable? We will investigate this through a study of farm and agriculture systems. Our Snapdragons will also work on strengthening their writing skills in Core as our skills strengthen through exploring and producing a variety of text styles and genres.
