Our study of Ecosystems is coming along very well. We have about two more weeks of instruction and then we will begin preparing for the essay quiz. At home, kids could be looking at the Powerpoint that I have provided here in the FOURTH GRADE QUIZZES section. These words are the types of vocabulary that the students should be using in their essay. A copy of the essay question is also located in the same spot.
Quiz dates will be announced in a week or so.
Also coming up is the Science Fair. The assignment will go out to the kids the week of Feb. 11. All of the documents are updated and uploaded here on my website if you’d like a preview. There will be six weeks of homework assignments due prior to the science fair. This homework is a large part of their grade in science and is designed to kept them paced along in order to complete the assignment on time. Please help your child to meet these deadlines.

We are now studying Ecosystems and Relationships of Living Things. This unit will take us well into February. At the end of the unit, the kids will take an essay quiz. The quiz question is:
John Muir said, "If you try to pick one thing out, you find it's hitched to everything in the Universe." Tell what he meant.
Use as many of the vocabulary words we have studied in this unit in your essay.
