Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

This week we started our unit on cold weather animals and the season of winter.  We read the book Eskimo, Eskimo What Do You Hear discussed about different kinds of animals that live in very cold places such as the North Pole or Antarctica.  We also read an emergent nonfiction text and student wrote about what their favorite polar animal is.

The next day we watched a science video about the Walrus and discussed different things that walrus have to adapt to such cold weather.  For art we made construction paper walrus art.

 


Yesterday a representative from Bering Land Bridge National Preserve came into our class to teach us about our ecosystem and the animals that live in it.  She read us the story North: The Amazing Story of Arctic Migration.  We learned about why certain animals live in cold climates, migrating patterns of arctic animals, and how animals survive and find food in the arctic.

Then students took turns picking an animal from a method of migration and deciding if they lived in the arctic or not.  They sorted the animals by arctic animals and non arctic animals by taping the picture of the animal to the picture of the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve.  We finished off the lesson with a song sung to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It.  The title of the song was If You Live in the Arctic.
