This week the class celebrated not only Earth day, but Earth week! On Monday, our praying mantis eggs arrived and we will be observing, as well as be learning all about how they grow, what they eat, and why they're so special! We also have been reading many fiction and non- fiction texts about ways to save the Earth. We talked about the 3 R's- reduce, reuse, and recycle!! We played a recycling game on the Smartboard, where we had to sort different materials. We had a whole group discussion about how to reuse them, too! We ended the week by creating 3-D objects using all recycled materials!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
