The Grade 5s have been hard at working researching various creatures that call soil HOME.
Each child had the choice of researching one of the following creatures which we have been learning about; the dung beetle, ant, earth worm and snail. The Grade 5s were enthusiastic to start their first research project and have tackled this task head on to date.
We have spent time each day in class researching, gathering information and learning how to record information in our own words. This information has been recorded creating their rough drafts of their project. From this point rough drafts are swapped, checked and altered before starting their final project. Creative juices are needed in order to create an interesting and informative booklet on their chosen creature.
The Grade 5s are doing a fantastic job, and have so enjoyed delving into the fascinating world of creatures who live in the soil. We can’t wait to see their final products.
