"Stone Soup"

This week we learned about zoo animals.  This was one of our favorite units so far, the students really enjoyed learning interesting facts about some of their favorite animals.

Monkey craft

 A fun game of "Barrel of Monkeys".

 Zoo puzzle

 Zoo memory match

 "Rhyming Rattlers" - Snakes created with a set of word families as the body. 

 Everyone enjoyed the book "Giraffes Can't Dance",  and we made giraffe handprints!

 Lacing practice with zoo animals.

 These books were great and taught us many wonderful facts about zoo animals. 

 The San Diego Zoo has an AMAZING kids website, it is full of videos, webcams, pictures and TONS of information.  We spent all the time we could exploring this wonderful resource.

 On Thursday, the students brought their favorite zoo stuffed animal.  We sorted these by different characteristics, graphed them, and even ordered them by size.

 Bo brought some tadpoles he found, this was a so interesting.  The students were amazed at how fast they could swim. 

Friday the students performed the musical "Stone Soup".  They all did a fabulous job!  Enjoy the pictures!!

 Kileigh returned to school from a fun trip to Puerto Rico.  She shared all about her trip with everyone, as you can see she had a blast!
