|Deep in research|
1st graders weren't done there. Each group then created a labeled diagram of their animal for our very own classroom tide pool. Students used labels and captions (which are non-fiction features) on their posters to help inform us.
Students have learned lots of new vocabulary and facts. A new vocabulary word we learned was invertebrate or animals with no backbones. Did you know a crab molts its shell? Or that a sea star can regenerate? Keep discussing these facts at home with your child so you're ready for our field trip too! You never know what you're going to learn.
