Over the course of the last three weeks, the kindergartners brainstormed, researched and designed Minnesota animals. The third graders researched what their animal did in the winter--if it migrated, hibernated or adapted. The kindergartners thought about which animal group their animal belonged in, since we are studying mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and insects. The children worked collaboratively with their buddies to create their creatures using tissue paper collage and shellac. See if you can spot the four insects, one reptile, one amphibian, four birds, and five mammals!
All animals are on display outside the lower school library in the commons!
