For the past 7 weeks Kindergarten has been studying the great big world, focusing on a new continent each week. This week my class took advantage of having an extra hour each day and participated in an African Animal research. Earlier in the week students chose an animal of their choice that is native to Africa. Then, they researched online and read books on their reading level to find facts about their animal. As they researched, they used a graphic organizer to organize the information learned. After completing a rough draft, they took it up a notch and published their writing using Google Docs on our Chromebooks. In the past, this has always been a whole group project but with the extended days I was able to take advantage of the extra time and really dig deep with my kiddos. They LOVED the experience and blew me away with what they were capable of.
