Next, we identified any kids that needed to work with Mrs. Kindschy to answer technology questions about their frog projects. In the meantime, we also began our Frog Posters to be used for our Frog Project Gallery. This gallery will be displayed outside our classroom and will have an Augmented Reality component. More about that next time!
We spent some time in the computer lab working on projects and posters. The kids had great focus during this work period!
Following this, we read a book starring flying frogs, Tuesday, by David Wiesner. A really cool, almost wordless picture book! It has a surprise ending. As a followup to the book, the kids created short presentations about a scene from the story or what might happen next. They presented some very creative ideas to the class!
After this, we worked on "Basic Frog Anatomy" from our Frog Packet in the Target Binder. These review questions will help the kids prepare for our dissection in May. Most of the answers can be find in the definitions pages or the diagrams we labelled together. Any remaining questions could easily be found on any basic frog anatomy website, check out the Frog Glog for some ideas.
Early Frog projects are due April 15th, with the rest due on April 22.
HW: Finish "Frog Anatomy" and work on the Frog project.
Until the frogs meet again,
