Write about at least one thing you enjoyed about this science unit AND one thing you did not like or would change:
I really liked when we sorted materials because I never really learned how to recycle properly. I liked how we went outside to see the trash that was thrown away or littered. I was surprised that my prediction was completely wrong. I didnt really like the brain pop videos because I cant always understand the robot. I would have liked to plant a tree, vegetable or flower.
