This Week in 1st Grade

This week in first grade, we learned about the Green Sea turtle! Did you know they can hold their breath up to 1 hour under water?

We also came up with creative adjectives, verbs and prepositional phrases to help write about the Great White Shark!
-Endangered misunderstood great white sharks dive in the coral reef.

We also started working on our class paragraph about the great white shark. We still have some more work to do, but we have a great start... as you can see below!

Here are a few of our team task pictorials we did on our Australian animals!

Animal Kingdom Visit by Aabha

When I was in animal kingdom, me and my family went on a safari. I saw lots of animals that lived in Africa. the animals were the okapi, giraffe, lion, lioness, African elephant, ring, cheataa, hippo, spotted dogs, antelope, spring buck, crocodiles, and zebras. We also saw a baobab tree. We went on a ride called expedition everest. It was very fun to go to animal kingdom! There was also a lion guard festival! I really enjoyed animal kingdom!

STEAM Giraffe challenge

Three rules, 10 pipe cleaners, one bonus challenge and 26 first graders! What do you get? Some awesome giraffes engineered by six and seven year olds. Enjoy!

Mackenzie- I really liked it because we got ours to stand up.
Aabha- I really liked the giraffe building because we got to work together and I got an experience.
Justin- Me and Colin worked together and my friends kept asking "what's your secret" and we said we just tried. Me and Colin did two giraffes and one had ossicones and one didn't.
Erik- I liked it because my second giraffe worked but the first one didn't.
Zachary- I didn't like it because we tried 100 times but the giraffe wouldn't stay up.
Mahit- I didn't like our giraffe because it was very small.
Braden- My one thing I didn't like is it took a lot of time to think about it but what I did like is that it started to stand up when we we thought about it a little more.
