  • How plants contribute to life on Earth

The key concepts emphasized within this inquiry are Causation, function and responsibility.

Mathematics:

We will reinforce the concept on number including addition, subtraction and story problems.  We have introduced the concept of money and will be working on money problems using local currencies which will be used in their day to day life. This unit also lends itself particularly well to measurement. We will be estimating and comparing using non-standard units of measurement to observe and measure the growth of plants.
