New Unit of Inquiry: How the World Works

Going Buggy in Room 1122!

We have begun our new unit of inquiry under the organizing theme: How the World Works.

The central idea is:
Scientists examine nature to understand relationships among humans
and all living things.
We were fortunate to begin our unit with some very exciting classroom visitors. We got up close and personal with tarantulas, a scorpion, cockroaches and other creepy crawlies.






We are learning how scientists classify living creatures. Our inquiry focuses on arthopods, a subset of the invertebrate family of animals. We sorted plastic bug models and then detailed sets of drawings. As we learn more about these creatures, we are fine tuning our classifications.
