ELA: This week we will be creating a Google Slideshow about owls! We finished the book “The Capture” last week about a group of owl who were kidnapped from their parents and taken to St. Aggie’s Orphanage to be put to work. The orphans were forced to help an evil group of owls who were trying to take over the kingdoms of owls who lived close. We learned about several types of owls while reading the book- Digging owls, Grey Owls, Barn Owls, etc. Students will choose one of the owl types from the book and create a presentation about that owl in the wild. We will end the week by watching the movie version of the book.

Science: This week we will focus on food chains in science. We will learn about the chain of energy that starts with the sun, moves to a plant, and then moves into animals. We will also learn some new vocabulary including producers, consumers, scavengers, and decomposers.
