We even began a new science unit getting deeper into insects and ecosystems. We began with collecting background knowledge, establishing our scientist's notebooks, and sketching information we think we know that could teach others. 
We took another "gallery walk" to collect new information and generated "I wonder" statements from that. 
We partner read to learn new scientific principles and vocabulary.
