                    This first trimester of science is spent on a unit entitled “People and Animals”. Students will study a small animal for which we read clues to find out what the animal is and is not.  We will not divulge the name of the animal here as that would spoil the learning and fun in class. 

                    Once the animal has been identified, we will spend time observing and experimenting.  Observing is one of the major parts of the “Scientific Process”.  Other parts of the process include drawing up a hypothesis, collecting data, communicating the data and drawing a conclusion. 

                     With all of these components, we emphasis the writing aspect of the experiment.  Students should be able to communicate in writing what they have done and the results of the experiment.
