Weekly Student Update

Posted on September 25, 2018 in Ecology,Student Update by Mrs. Roach

This week in Ms. Roach’s science class we’re starting our first unit about Ecology, which is how plants and animals adapt to their environment, As well as learning about the differences between a Population, Community, Ecosystem, Biome, Biosphere, and figure out basic needs that a plant and or animal needs to thrive in their environment.


We are also doing an “Animal Research Project” , where we have to make a 3-D animal model of our choice and make a slideshow with information about that animal, One will be chosen to be displayed at the Phoenix Zoo, however, the animal your child chooses can’t already be in the Phoenix Zoo. In some part of the presentation your child will have to explain why the animal they choose should be in the zoo. The final presentation is due December 14th  Your child brought home a paper with more information about the project that you have to sign and return to Ms. Roach. This project will be most of your child’s Science grade.


That was your weekly check up of what your child is doing and learning in class, so now you can ask your child “What did you do at school today?” or “What’s happening in science class?” and see if they’ll leave out any details or simply haven’t been paying attention, as well ask them for the “Animal Research Project” paper in case they didn’t tell you about it or forgot. That’s all till next week and thanks for reading!


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our teacher at rroach@goja.org.
