We have had a lot of fun learning about animals that live in the ocean. Each student chose an animal that they wanted to become an expert on. Every child was able to research and find one fact about their animal. We learned so many wonderful things! Did you know that an octopus has a beak? That's what their mouth is called! Did you know that it's the daddy seahorse that carries the babies in their pouch?
We decided to create a mural outside of our classroom showcasing our beautiful artwork and all the facts we learned. We also took this opportunity to learn about the difference between fact and fiction. Students were very interested in using books, Ipads, and computers to help them complete their work.
First, we did our research.
Next, we painted our animals and added characteristics that we found out about them. For example, we learned that an octopus has suckers on each tentacle, so we added them.
Our final product looks amazing!!
Kindergarten families in Ms Schwartz's room are invited to ask your child which expert group they were in. See if they can remember what facts they learned about that animal!
All this practice asking questions is just in time for the Kindergarten trip to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) on Tuesday, February 28th! We can't wait to hear all about the dinosaurs they see there!!
