Claim. Evidence. Reasoning
This week we are wrapping up the “Adopt an Alien” presentations. It has been so much fun listening to the presentations and hearing the explanation of the aliens characteristics based on their home planets. We have had aliens of all sizes and shapes, different colors, some with lights, some that stick to windows, and some that needed a cooler to stay cold on their long journey!
This week we are going to begin one last research project… we will be making “Wanted Posters” for famous scientist! This will not be as extensive as the Adopt-an-Alien project and will be done only in the classroom. No supplies needed!
