Think Spring, Think Spring
Earlier in our reading unit our class read about the Bald' Eagle's nest being close to 15 feet wide and ten feet deep, we were all in awe. Then we read about the penguin's life cycle, and how the father tends to the egg for weeks, keeping it warm in his brood patch, we were again in awe. Now, learning about how the northwestern tribes held the eagle in high regard, students are weaving all of their knowledge together.
This week's "Question of the Week" in reading is: "How can people help an animal in danger?". This was introduced on Monday, just after Jenna shared with the class that her family recused an injured screech owl, and took it to Aark, on Upper Stump Road. The class is making great connections with their learning!
Below is the link if you would like to visit. (The eggs have been seen from the camera--students will be keeping watch to see when the hatch--it is expected to be near or around March 27th). A great lead in to our life cycles unit!
