Science in the community- (Unit #5 Gregor Mendel)

We are learning about genetics this month in science. A great opportunity for your child would be to attend the movie Wonder at the movie theater. It is based on the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio and is fabulous. The protagonist was born with a genetic mutation called Treacher Collins Syndrome. Not only is it a great book, but it teaches lessons on choosing kindness and not bullying.

Another option if your child can’t see the movie, is to interview a grandparent and find out what similarities and differences your child has with their relative.

Fill out the science in the community ticket in my classroom, have your parent sign it and turn it into my science bird jar for a treat and a chance to get your name in for consideration for the Einstein Award.

So now go “BOND” over the movie/book Wonder haha! (Get it….bond!)
