Science Learning Targets:  
We will continue our unit on plant structures, functions and the process of photosynthesis.
Science Learning Activities: Students will continue learning about the parts of the plant and the functions of each part. Students will use models, cut and paste illustrations and examples to help them understand the parts of a plant and how it uses carbon dioxide, sunlight and water to make its own food.
