We have an Interactive Science Notebook (ISN) to "input" and "output" information we are learning about.  The left pages are the input side where we highlight notes on the topics we are trying to input into our learning. The right page are the output side which is were we show what we have learned.

This year we will spend a large amount of time learning about the Earth's spheres (Geosphere).   Within this topic we will be learning about the layers of the earth, plate tectonics and rocks and minerals.  In January will transition to a study of the biosphere with a focus on plants in the rainforest.  We will also discuss the hydrosphere.

Here are some links that may help you study this year.
