Your child’s textbook is different from most—it’s meant for students to write in it. Therefore, it is a record of learning. Look through lessons your child has completed recently, and be sure to ask lots of questions. One of the best ways for students to check on their learning is to explain it to someone else.
In this unit of study, your child will be introduced to living things, what they need to survive, and how they are classified. Your child will also learn about infectious agents, such as viruses and bacteria. In the following weeks of study, the unit will provide your child with a deepening of understanding about the characteristics of living things.
