Worth a Thousand Words

Dear Blue Families,

They say a picture is worth a thousand words; please enjoy a visual journey of our latest learning adventures.

Ghost Shark Watercolor Diagram

Students drew a diagram labeling a Ghost Shark with different structural adaptations.  Students determined where on the body the adaptation label belonged.  Then thinking like a scientist students added color to their diagrams with watercolor.

Anglerfish Lanterns

Students drew various types of Anglerfish on paper then wrapped them around recycled coffee cans.  Next students poked holes to let light through to simulate the bioluminescence of angler fish.  Finally, they added a little glow-in-the-dark paint and a blue LED tea light to complete the lantern.

Warm Fuzzies

During a Circle Time focused on community and thankfulness students made “warm fuzzies” from the book ‘Warm Fuzzy Tale,’ using yarn and googly eyes.  Then, students wrote a compliment to the recipient of their “warm fuzzy.”

Holiday Pickles!

Students made ‘Holiday Pickles’ for their families.  Each student made their own jar of pickles and wrote a corresponding recipe.  Students first sliced cucumbers, then added vinegar, water, sugar, and spices of their choosing to their pickles.   Finally, they designed a pickle jar label!
