We Are Garter Snake Experts!! (or in scientific terms... herpetologists!)
Today we compiled all the information we have learned during our research and completed our KWL chart. We were surprised how quickly we were able to become "experts/herpetologists". Utilizing many different sources the Kiddoes were very engaged during this project. Not only did our knowledge base about garter snakes grow, the kiddoes also engaged in the following activities:
- shared reading/writing
- guided reading
-differences between non-fiction and fiction books
- text features discussions
Perhaps the most excitement came when I announced that each Kiddoe was going to being doing his/her very own research project next. Yes... you read that right! Starting this week, each child will be choosing which insect he/she would like to research. Keep watching to see how this project will develop!
