along with several nonfiction books to complete our research. I allowed my groups to choose which penguins they wanted to research and present. This definitely helped give them ownership and increased productivity!
Each group had to find out: Penguin Name, Diet, Size, Habitat, and an Interesting Fact. I gave them sticky notes to make their notes 🙂
After they gathered all information needed they worked on drawing/coloring a picture of their penguin. I always love how these turn out!
This was one of my favorites!
After my students finished their writing and drawing it was time to work on presenting! We used the app called ChatterPix to present. I’m so thankful for blogs and sharing because Amanda Madden shared this JUST in time earlier this week! My kids got such a kick out of these! Love, love, love!!!
I had prepped the materials to make our penguin hats, but ran out of sentence strips (and was too lazy to cut paper!!). So, we just used it for a little penguin reflection 🙂 You can grab that paper HERE.
I’m fairly certain my students use an entire glue bottle every single time they work! UGH!
Next week we will be inferring like crazy with our mystery unit… which will also be tons of fun!!!
