Notes
Notes are recorded and organized in an extremely neat and orderly fashion. I successfully use suggested informational texts to find information by effectively using text features to understand information without assistance. I successfully use suggested internet links to find information and navigates within these sites easily without assistance. Outline has been completed and shows clear, logical relationships between all topics and subtopics. I work well with my group by helping gather information and taking on various roles that are needed for my group to complete tasks. I used the classroom blog to post a comment about 3 different plant environments and explain why the plants that live there survive best in that particular environment. I used the classroom blog to ask a detailed and thoughtful question about plant environments and adaptations.
