January 2019 | The 5+ class presented their Animals in Winter Reports! In January, the 5+ class learns about what animals do in winter. Do they migrate? Adapt and stay active? Hibernate? Each student chooses an animal to learn about and non-fiction books are sent home with a list of questions to research. We use this research to write and illustrate a report, create their animal out of Model Magic and that animal's habitat in winter. The kids learn SO much and after they read their report to the class, we celebrate with a Hot Chocolate Pajama Party!
