1st Grade Specials
NFS Curriculum Update :: May & June 2016
First graders will talk about how adult animals can look like their young and how sometimes they don’t. We continue to observe caterpillars, which reside in the classroom, as they continue their life cycle through metamorphosis into a chrysalis and finally a butterfly that reiterates this concept. We end the year looking at how humans create things that mimic nature. We explore how swimming fins are like fish tails or duck feet, airplanes are shaped like birds, and bike helmets are like turtle shells. We end the year exploring students' ideas and creations based on plant and animal adaptations.
