Jungle Animal Unit Revisted! I love this unit!

Hello Friends!

Gosh... It's FINALLY Friday! Whew! It seemed like a LOOONG week! I think it is because the closer we get to the end of the year, the MORE there is to do that is not just teaching AND, we are still supposed to get meals ready, do laundry, clean our house, and everything else that needs to be done on the weekend - Yikes!

I thought I would share with you our latest jungle pictures. If you have been following my blog, you know that we do these every year and I NEVER get bored with doing this project! This year, my kiddos paired up with an 8th grade buddy who helped with their paper mache animal. It was AWESOME to see the littlest working with the biggest!
We do two African habitats - the Rainforest and the Savannah. My kiddos chose an African animal to research, wrote a report about their animal, and then did their paper mache animal with their buddy. Then they worked with a group to paint an African Rainforest and Savannah. They created their chosen African animal from paper and glued it to the correct habitat.

  This year, the kids created these cute Safari people for the background for their reports.

Of course, throughout this whole unit, my kiddos are illustrating their own animal book while learning about the animals of Africa as well as their habitats.

 The final project we do for our African unit is our giraffe portraits - love them! This mixed media project is so much fun! We use pencils to draw the outline of the giraffe. Trace with crayons and then sponge paint a jungle background. Fun and cute!

Until next time!
