|We started our Arctic Unit by |
discussing proper "Winter Wear".
During this time many of the classic
mitten stories were read. So of course
we needed to see if they are "Smitten for
a Mitten, or if they Love the Glove".
|Students created Polar Bear Paintings.|
|OF COURSE we had to spend a|
week learning about penguins.
|Igloos out of packing peanuts... |
we all know how those can add up quickly.
This was great for fine motor.
|One of their favorite projects was creating a Walrus. |
I saw this idea online a while back .
They LOVED using a variety of materials:
plate, bowl, spoons, toothpicks foam, etc.
|A sneak peak at our winter scene.|
The large penguin is the actual size
of an Emperor. Students were able to go
and measure themselves against him.
There was also a Fairy Penguin
(the smallest) to the right.
|And, one last peak at their wonderful art. <3|
