Building Animals

The students did an amazing job planning and building their animals. They used their schema (background knowledge) from our Testing Unit to help them build a strong and stable animal.

When you comment on this post please explain how you made your animal stable. Think about the size of its head, body, shape of legs, position of the legs under the body, etc. Have fun and I look forward to reading all the posts!

IREC celebrates 100th Day!!!


We celebrated 100th day by dressing up like a 100 year old granny or grandpa, wearing bracelets and necklaces made out of 100 elastics, 100 paperclip necklaces, 100 dollar bills, and several fun costumes. The students put over 100 autographs in alphabetical order and started our trivia facts assignment using the Chromebooks. A fun-filled day of learning about that special number 100!
