watch them underwater and on the ground. The students loved it! If this is something your family would be interested in, you can google: live feed "animal name" It can be fun family time.
Mrs. Drummond was able to do a fun polar animal patterning activity with students. We talk in calendar that a pattern is something that happens again and again, but it was one of the first time they tried it on their own. This is a fun activity you can do at home with colors, foods, or anything! Learning can be fun!
Students were also able to count the carrots to feed to the Frozen reindeer. They are doing great at counting and still working on writing numbers. Keep practicing at home!
Students also got to do a cool science experiment. Students started with making a prediction of what they thought would happen if they put a hand in snow with nothing on it. They then tried it if they had blubber on their hands like the polar animals did. They then tested their predictions and found out that the blubber keeps their hands warmer!
Another fun project we did was pretend we were polar animals (in gym and the hallways). Students really worked some new muscles!
|Polar Bear Walk: Students put their hands and feet on the floor (not their knees)|
|Walking like a Walrus: Students put their tummys to the floor, hands on the floor, straighten their arms, and walk with their hands.|
|Walking like a Penguin: Students hold a ball (penguin egg) between their eggs and waddle.|
Students worked on PALS and telling me all they know so that we can put it in their notes to moms and dads. They are making so much progress. Keep practicing at home!
