Creature Features

Using story books is a great way to engage children.  This month, kindergarten and grade 1 classes are working to build their own animal.  First, we read the book “Creature Features” by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page (2014). IMG_0454

We discussed different features animals have to help them survive in their habitat.  Then the children began their design process and drew what kind of animal they would like to build.  It could be an imagined one or a real one.

Next week, we will be looking at different materials we have in MakerSpace and decide how to build the animals using recycled materials.
