Micros in F3!
After completing our unit, "Microworlds", we are now going to start learning about how microorganisms and micro-particles affect our lives. Students have been able to see plant and animal cells using our class microscopes and will now learn about health issues related to organisms that are too small to see without the use of a microscope.
This week, students will be responsible for documenting a health issue in their home or community. Using this form, they can use a camera or draw a picture and write about this health issue. We will be talking about various health issues at school. Later on in the month they will be using these pictures as well as research on that chosen topic to present to the class. There are so many topics to choose from!
