Help me give my students play-based materials for our Animal Habitats Unit. My students need animal figures to act out key concepts from our science standards.
My students are such a unique set of individuals who come together to make a wonderful, curious community of learners. They all come from diverse backgrounds, socioeconomically, religiously, and culturally.
What I admire most about my students is their love of learning and their ferocious appetite for reading.
They are constantly making connections in their learning and finding ways to apply their knowledge. Some students have even come up to me to show books they have created based on what we’ve learned.
During the winter, my first graders study animals through our Animal Habitat science unit and ELA curriculum. We learn about animals from the most common habitats (e.g. deserts and oceans) in our science lessons. During reading lessons, our basal reader is set at the zoo and students continue to learn about specific animals. I want to continue to integrate our science topic into one of the most important times of my first graders' day: play time.
The animal figures and materials in this project would enable my students to apply science topics into their play; which is the best way children learn.
These different animal figures would start a collection of materials students can role-play with. Students can act out concepts such as food chains with their animals. The rain forest book is an additional tie-in into our science curriculum, because the Kapok Tree is in a topic in our reading anthology.
