We are continuing our unit in habitats. This week we will explore the Tropical Rain Forest and talk about the various levels. We will learn the vocabulary words canopy, dense and colonies. We will also compare this to a deciduous forest and coniferous forest.
We will begin our unit on Early Civilizations. We will discuss how long ago people moved from hunting and gathering to farming. We will take a closer look at the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas in this unit.
