English Learners Enjoy Recent Community Outing!

In Ms. Wulfkuhle's First Grade English Learner group, the students are learning about animals and habitats. One of the main goals of the unit is to discuss by inquiring in order to build and present knowledge gathered through research. Two of the habitats students are exploring are the forest and the ocean, so they stopped by a trail in the forest at Barton's Cove to feel what it's like in the forest firsthand. Then they went to the Discovery Center and did a scavenger hunt to find animals in the forest and ocean habitats. Finally, they went to the Carnegie Library to get their own library cards and find resources to answer their own research questions on an animal of their choice.
