reading



I'm blogging this because it is my favorite reading task so far and it is all so about our inquiry

We are learning to clean up cars that are broken down.

This is my reading task from week 8 and we are learning about recycling and about dead cars and that it’s bad for the environment. Our reading task is to find out what can be recycled and how it gets recycled for example paper it gets mashed up and turned into other things like newspaper.
