Promised Pictures!

Well, I told you that I would post pictures of our Intertidal Mural that we created last week at the summer program. I was really pleased with their work!

We spent Monday and Tuesday researching animals that live in tide pools. I had them each spend time on computers using websites I had found for them. They each chose an animal, and then wrote a report like these:

Then, the older kids were given web pages to research the different levels of the intertidal zone.

The little ones were busy drawing and cutting out paper organisms to add to our mural while the older ones did their research. Then they got to join in the fun too!

Here is the finished product!

I'm so proud of them!
