This week our study is called Inside Living Things.  We have read the section on cells, and have introduced and reviewed the vocabulary.  The group knows we will have an assessment over cells and their functions.  They are responsible for vocabulary and “the meat” from pages 1 through  and including 8.  They also know the assessment is Wednesday  and have known since last Wednesday.  We will also learn about organs and the tissues associated with them. NO STEAM this week.
