The Wilds of China
This week students will continue reading about the wilds of China. We will continue reviewing context clues to find meaning of new words and finding supporting evidence from text.
We will be reading the last two articles from the series Disneynature: The Snub-nosed Monkey and The Red-crowned Crane. Students will focus on the following vocabulary words: forager, lichen, arboreal, troop, offspring, vocalization and rheumatism. They will be working in small group to complete a vocabulary brochure. For each word, they will provide a definition, an example, an illustration and a sentence using the word. This will be due on Friday,
