Using this resource group, students learn about documentation using charts. If Sid doesn't fill his chore chart with stickers, he'll never get a new Turbo-Robot-Rocketship toy. Sid wonders, who needs charts anyway? After a day of investigating, Sid learns that charts are great science tools that help compare and contrast all kinds of cool stuff like snacks, pets, and even chores! The resource group includes an English and Spanish version of five video clips, as well as the associated Science Adventures Curriculum Guide.
