We have been integrating our learning... A month ago we learned in reading how to ask good questions and what it means to "research". We used our trip to the zoo to pick and animal to measure (putting math into action) and learn more from a field visit. In reading and writing time we have used all kinds of resources to find information about our animal's habitat, eating habits, interesting facts, and their appearance. Students used math time to recreate their measurements from the zoo. Finally we are putting all the pieces together by using the "Show Me" App on the iPads to film our report. Here are a few. I will post more as they are complete. I hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed making them!
