We are learning about adaptations in animals in our science class. An adaptation is a way an animal’s body helps it survive, or live, in its environment. Today, we read the ‘The Mixed-Up Chameleon’ and did some research about special body parts that make animals unique. We then created our own mixed up animals. Check out our blogs for our mixed-up animals.
To celebrate the last week of school and consolidate our learning about living things, the Grade 1/2’s traveled to Morrison Dam for the day. We took part in a Puddles and Pollywogs program where we explored living things that live in the water, we went on a nature walk, and scavenger hunt. We had a fantastic day! Check it out 😀
Today, we let go our class pets. A while ago, we brought in some tadpoles and kept the, in our class. We watched them every day and you will see how they grew and went through metamorphosis before our very own eyes. See our own blog posts for the changes we saw. When we let them go, we had some baby frogs and some that were still going through the stages of their life cycle. None were adult frogs when we let them go. We took them out of the tank in our class, and took them to the pond at the back of the school. We want to make sure they got retuned to their natural habitat (that means their home in nature). Goodbye to our little friends! It was cool to see you grow! Good luck!
