Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!

One of my resolutions is to get better about posting more frequently the things we are learning about in class. My goal would be to post at least once a month. (Fingers crossed)

The Elephant Sanctuary

This week in social studies/science, we have been learning about an Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee (thanks to the News2You newspaper this week). We worked on the vocabulary related to the story (elephant, habitat, caretakers, home) as well as discussed where we live (Ohio) versus where the sanctuary is (Tennessee).

Today, the students completed an elephant craft which they LOVED doing. We incorporated identifying body parts as well. Here are a couple pictures from out fun today.
