2 I can listen effectively to my partner when sharing. I can record what I notice and wonder about during a Gallery Walk. I can compare and contrast texts and images about rainforests. I can describe in writing a unique living thing from the rainforest. I can explain how scientists communicate their research about the rainforest. I can explain the general purpose of an informational text. Learning Targets

17 The culture and customs of the Muruts are uniquely distinguishable from other groups in Sabah. They too use blowpipe for hunting and attacking enemies.The Murut men in the past liked to fight fearlessness to prove he is more courageous than others. Before marriage the men must go to the war, with at least one trophy to bring back to show he is ready to look after his own family. The trophy is none other than the head of their enemy. According to the Murut culture values, one must respects another and always unite with family and relatives. As in marriage, the bride family may ask the bridegroom for 20 big jars, 20 small jars, 10 water buffaloes and RM10, or more in cash as gift. In a funeral, the family must wait for at least seven days before they bury their loved one. Sometimes, funeral day could reach two weeks or even one month so that relatives and friends from afar can come to pay last respect. Those days, the Muruts used big jar as coffin.

24 Pretend you are a scientific team working in the rainforest. Talk with your partner about how you would explain, or describe, what you are doing or seeing to someone who wasn’t there.

25 Write a brief paragraph in their journal describing what they are doing or seeing in the photograph.

26 I can explain the general purpose of an informational text. Learning Targets

29 What are you most excited about learning about the rainforest and why?

30 You will not only be learning about the rainforest. You will also be learning about how scientists research and communicate your findings. At the end of the module, you will get to be scientists and communicate what you have learned to others.

31 Words and phrases that show the characters’ actions, thoughts, and feelings Words and phrases to clearly identify the setting Words/phrases from the UDHR your group is focusing on Words and phrases that make clear transitions between events and scenes
