Our seventh grade biobuddies came today to help us begin our science unit on the body! Our buddies are tremendously kind, thoughtful, engaged--just great role models for our kindergartners. I was very impressed with how well they jumped right in as they helped their kindergarten buddies paint their feet and hands, measure their weight and height (using the metric system!) and create a self-portrait. Each set of buddies began to get to know each other with the buddy interview, asking each other about their favorite color, dessert, book, game (Candyland and Madden Football video games came up a few times) and more.
