Science and Social Studies will be integrated into our reading and writing at times. We will begin the year with Social Studies and learning about how our government was created and why. We will discuss the development of our leaders and the Revolutionary War. This will all be in time to teach the 3 branches of government and prepare for the election in November! We have a lot of work to do! The first science unit of the year will be studying the Earth. We will be focusing on plate tectonics, the surface and layers of the earth and learning how the earth changes over time. It is a lot of fun and I can't wait to get started. Science and Social Studies units will be switched back and forth as the year progresses!
