Zoo Animals  Research Project

The ‘staches will be using my Zoo animals research creation to research and write about zoo animals!!  Each day we will learn about a different zoo animal.  We read a book about the animal, complete a tree chart, and label the parts of the animals.  The students write about the animal in their zoo research journals!

This research project contains suggested books, recording sheets for each zoo animal as well as all the materials needed to create your research journal and graphic organizers!  This 2 week ocean unit is aligned to the NGSS.  (NOTE:  This research project was recently updated in much more user friendly design!)

Math: Subtraction Bootcamp

In math, we are starting Subtraction BOOTCAMP!  This differentiated math curriculum involves whole group practice with subtraction to 10.  Then it also allows us to provide differentiated small group or individual activities.

First, we do a circle map whole group.  Students find the equations that equal the number on the circle map.

Then, we do individual and small group work with differentiated activities.

First, for students who need some extra practice with adding, they will do individual circle maps!

For students who need a little challenge, we do our MISSION Subtraction activity!  Students go through each row and find the number pairs that equal the number when added!  They color the two numbers!
