Your child has been assigned a science project in Mrs. Jaffe’s class. The project was started in class and involves illustrating the reproductive parts of a flowering plant and writing/typing of summary of that process. Both the written portion and the illustration were modeled in class last week; students were even given time in class to start the illustration. To complete the work, your child will need his/her science journal and folder that contain important printed resources. Please talk with your child about this project. The directions and grading rubric are very clear. Feel free to contact Mrs. Jaffe (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
