Project Based Learning {Part 2}

If you have not read how this project began, you can find part 1 here.

Students finished up their typing and illustration of their animal in KidPix on Friday.  We also began the creation of our habitats.

After filling in their graphic organizer with facts about their animals, students typed the material in sentences to make a mini report about their animal.

We used KidPix to do our typing and illustrating because students are familiar with the program.  
Students also drew an illustration of their animal, but I didn't catch any pictures of that step.

On Friday, students also began to create their habitats.  They made me shopping lists early in the week, so I gathered the materials they needed.  Below are a few pictures of the group worked that happened Friday.

The farm group working to make a silo from an oatmeal container and construction paper.

My friends who are studying the pond are making an alligator  by painting a stick.

The cave group is creating their cave by painting the inside of the box black.

My rainforest friends are making flowers to brighten up their forest.

Monday my kiddos will finish their animals.  They will also begin assembling their habitats.  Tuesday will be a day to put the finishing touches on the project.  In the afternoon on Tuesday, students will practice telling one another about their projects.  Wednesday our families come to see us graduate, and we will have the opportunity to share our projects with them!
