We have been learning about animals over the last week or so. I contacted a local pet store and asked one of the employees to bring in an assortment of pets, but no "typical" pets like cats and dogs. I wanted to students to experience pets that they might otherwise not see. I did this with my class last year, and it was a big hit. This year, they were kind enough to include all the kindergarten classes.
Two young men presented 20 minute sessions to 2 classes at a time. We learned about how to care for each of the animals, the life span and other cool facts. Students were then given the opportunity to touch each animal; this was, of course, the highlight for them!
|This was a "no thank you" for me! The kids loved the colors of this snake.|

I'm hoping to be back soon back on track with the Worksheets Don't Build Dendrites book study!
