Animals and Their Needs unit- Kindergarten (click here)

As you may remember, during the Animals and Their Needs unit, we had a lesson about the famous biologist and environmental activist, Dr. Jane Goodall. Classes may have viewed a short video biography or listened to a read aloud of the children's biography entitled "Me..Jane." As classes we talked about how Dr. Goodall had a dream of living in Africa and studying animals. This was the kickoff to each of your classes' study of webcam videos of animals. After several observations, students used their notes to author their own non-fiction texts about animals which they studied. Several of their non-fiction texts were actually shared with Dr. Goodall thanks to John Campbell at Central Office.
Dr. Goodall was so excited about their books that she recorded this video message for them! Please make sure to share the video with your students this week. I would love to be able to visit your rooms to introduce the video as well, so please let me know when you'll be able to share it. It is only about 1 1/2 minutes long, but it's well worth the time!

"Did Your Father Die?" By John Woodrow Cox, Washington Post

"Eagle’s founders had opened the pre-k through third-grade public charter in 2012 because of the struggles in Congress Heights, not in spite of them. They knew what the growing body of research showed: Chronic exposure to violence could disrupt a child’s brain development and inflict profound mental and emotional damage. At Eagle, a place where so many of its students live in poverty that everyone gets three free meals a day, the staff doesn’t come to work just to teach lessons from books."
