In science we will be wrapping up our unit on genetics and go into adaptations and do a bug collection. The kids don't know this yet so, that should be fun! We will make killing jars as we collect the bugs, then put all of the bugs that are collected on a board for display. The students will be responsible for looking up the scientific name by using a dichotomous key. Then the students will make up their own dichotomous key and try it out on their peers.
We have our final looks at our science fair for the next 2 Fridays. We add our graphs and data table this week and will re-work our research papers and build our boards. All of the projects will need to be done outside of class. The date for the science fair is Thursday May 22nd from 5-7. It will be a great time to see what these kids have come up with!
