Today we met up with our 4th grade reading partners and continued working on our collaborative animal project. Today the 4th graders helped the kindergartners figure out if their animal was alive and how they could prove it. The 4th graders were reading non-fiction books to the kindergartners and helping them research and find more facts about their animal. They also used an educational website to help collect research. Both the kindergartners and 4th graders are enjoying this cooperative project.
We are looking forward to the next part of the project. Next week we will meet up with out 4th grader partners and draw the animal they are researching on the Drawing Pad app and then the students will work together to write a script for their animal to explain what they learned.
