In my school we started to learn about how to take notes. Our teacher taught us how to get so much information in one paragraph. He also taught us how to work with a group. Also we learned about how to come up with subtopics that are important to know about our topic. When we finished our research we would present to our teachers. During our research we had groups with another class,4-B.My partners were Victoria,Jalyn, Emma,Peter( They in my class), Jack,Liya,Taryn,Matthew( They are in 4-B).
This Non-fiction unit was all about how to research properly. So we started off by how to choose a good resource. Also how it is organized.Plus we learned how to gather information that you actually need.We learned different techniques such as organize, raise questions, make comparison,and give an example of what you mean. After we learned how to use those techniques we started studying different topics of weather.
The topics were volcanoes( we studied that), droughts,hurricanes,tsunamis(we did that too) earthquakes(and that that one too)and much much more. Our reading teacher , Mr.Deberry assigned our groups and topics. While teaching us he used a book called Everything Weather.
This book talks about different types of dangerous weather.
We all made a slideshow for our topics.
I think i learned so much from Mr.Deberry. From learning how to do nonfiction writing better than we us to. Now that i have learn how to write much better i would like to teach other people what i have learned. This is probably why i wrote this! Or it is because it is assigned.
This is the book Mr.DeBerry used to teach.
Ocean Food Web By Katherine Kendall
Ecosystems are when nonliving and living things interact with each other. On the other hand ecosystems can also be a food chain. A food chain is when one living thing eats a nonliving or living thing. Ecosystems make the world a good place for animals to live. That means that if one thing goes away almost everything else will go too.
In the ocean there are mostly fish, like Billfish, Salmon, Sardines,and the Tetra. Other creatures that live in the ocean are sharks, dolphins, sea urchins, and the sea otters All creatures in the ocean need water just like us!!!
In the ecosystem there are different types of animals. Such as mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and insects. You can also section them by using decomposers producers, consumers.
