New Reading Unit – Garbage

We are kicking off a new reading unit garbage and recycling!

Your children over the next several weeks will be diving into answering some important questions:

* What is garbage? Where does it go? Even what is dung? ( third grade boys love to talk about this!) They will learn the history of garbage – (which is rather gross)and why our garbage system today is important. They will also be inspired to find ways to make it better. We have too much garbage today- what can we do? This is an important unit in third grade. We hope they come home inspired!

Today Miss Santella spent time with 3A assessing their prior knowledge and giving them background knowledge before we start our books. Each table got a bag with different garbage inside to analyze the garbage and see if they knew what to do with it. 3b and 3c will do these activities next.
