Ecosystems in the First Grade

Our fantabulous firsties have switched to a new teacher for our ecosystem study.  Mrs. P is studying the Rain Forest, Mrs. Sm is studying the deciduous forest, and Mrs. St (my class) is studying  the ocean.  So much fun!!! Yesterday, Mrs. P's class (my new group) used their iPads and Qrafter and viewed 4 videos about the 4 ocean zones we are studying.  Today, we extended that by creating a booklet about the four zones.  Thursday they will get to draw animals that live in each zone and write some more facts about each zone.  I love how excited they are about learning.  We also sang a song about the 5 oceans and they wanted to sing them over and over and over again!! Thanks to Mrs. H. at for the wonderful idea for the booklet!
