My third grade students love to read books! Books provide them with windows and doors to both new and familiar places and also provide them with mirrors so they can see themselves in the characters that they read about. They love to sit in different areas of the classroom and enjoy their favorite books.
Our school is one of the oldest schools in our district on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.
Up until the mid-'90s, children of the Oahu Sugar Company workers comprised the majority of the school population. The closing of the sugar plantation has brought many changes to our school community. Many of our families live in multi-family or multi-generational homes. 55% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches. 30% of our families speak a language other than English at home.
Our students are respectful, energetic, inquisitive learners who come to school eager to learn. Their love for learning is evident in the way they enjoy learning and trying new things.
Our students are currently building their background knowledge and learning about frogs and how they survive. Students will research a specific frog so they can teach others about their frog's unique adaptations. Wouldn't it be great for them to be able to sculpt and paint their very own Fabulous Forever Frog to use in their presentation?
These scientific sculptures will feature unique frog adaptations that students will be able to present and discuss with the school community.
Through this project, students will use various art media, group and individual research notes, and presentation skills to share their knowledge about their frog.
