I am learning to retell a familiar story that I read or I have read to me.

I am learning about materials, objects, and structures.
- tell what a material, object, and structure is

- use science vocabulary such as experiment, explore, purpose, rigid, flexible, solid and smooth
- identify objects, materials, and structures found in nature and those made by humans
- identify the sources in nature of some common materials that are used in making structures
- identify objects in the environment that are made for similar purposes, what they are made of and why, and what happens to them when they are no longer being used (i.e. different kinds of shoes)
- identify the kinds of waste produced in the classroom
- plan and carry out a classroom course of action for minimizing waste and tell why it is important
