They loved seeing all the animals! There were so many too. I hadn't been to the Chaffee Zoo in years and couldn't believe how big it is.
|They loved Sting Ray Bay|
|This was truly our favorite. Sea Lion Cove was |
|When I saw this it cracked me up. I'm on the same diet as a turtle :)|
I created a Zoo Guide/Emergency Contact book for my students'. I loved the way they turned out. I was amazed to see them actually pulling out the map and using it. It was very cute! Oh how they have grown so much.
|I put their Zoo Guide and snack in this ziplock bag. Each student wore one. I loved this idea! My teacher friend, Jamie Huerta came up with it.|
Lastly, we are working on nonstandard units of measurement. For the math lesson it required that each student use paper clips. As you can imagine that could be a little crazy for first graders (and probably extremely stressful for this OCD teacher). I figured sine I have measurement clipart by the AMAZING Melonheadz I would put it to use. I created paper clip rulers for each student. Each student received four rulers, two for in class and two for at home. I also created a pencil ruler as well.
