Arctic Animals

Arctic Animals 

This week in my classroom we have been learning about the animals that live in the Arctic. To begin the Arctic unit, I introduced the vocabulary.  The kids had a blast making their vocabulary puzzles, and they were able to play a matching game with a partner.  

Next, we completed our KWL chart:

The the kids did a pair share with the reading comprehension passage:

 Here is our graphic organizer we completed after they had read the passage:

For each of the Arctic animals we studied the kids completed an assessment.  

My class really enjoyed learning about the Arctic!!!

Here is one of the activities we did after we had read about the Arctic Hare.   We folded a piece of copy paper, the student created an illustration of the animal we learned about, and then the student wrote three facts about the animal.
