Science Lab Week at a Glance
Mrs. Ledford
Dates: 5-7 thru 5-11-18

Butterfly assignments and activities- K, 1, and 2
Butterflies are now emerging from their chrysalis!


Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems: Animals, Plants, and Their Environment
K-LS1-1 Use observations to describe patterns of what plant and animals (including humans) need to survive.  Living, nonliving, once living/ basic needs
Animal behavior and communication    Butterfly life cycle observations- Butterfly Release

First Grade-McBroom

Structure, Function, and Information Processing
1-LS1-1 Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/ or animals use their external parts to survive, grow, and meet their needs. 
How do different plants use their parts in different ways to survive? Plants have different parts (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruits) that help them survive and grow. Butterfly life cycle/observations – Butterfly Release!

Second Grade - 1/2 of Doss and 1/2 of Morton

Butterfly life cycle observations 2 LS4-1  Butterfly Release!

Earth's Systems: Processes That Shape the Earth
2-ESS1-1 use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. (Volcanoes, earthquakes, erosion of rocks, etc.)
Wind and water can change the shape of the land.
River model and erosion activity

Third Grade-Goss

Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
3-LS2-1 Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive. Social interactions and group behavior
3-LS4-1 Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago. Evidence of common ancestry and diversity. Inherited and learned behavior/traits   Butterfly life cycle observations- 3-LS1-1 Butterfly Release!

Fourth Grade-Crow

Earth's Systems: Process that Shape the Earth

4-ESS2-1 'Make observations and/ or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering on the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. Biogeology -living things affect the characteristics of their regions. Volcanoes, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. and how they shape and reshape our earth
