We have put the finishing touches on our Arctic animal research project! Last week, the kids used their "dot jot" research to compose a report that taught their audience about an Arctic animal. I was absolutely amazed at how easily the kids used their notes (dot jots) to compose complete sentences in their reports! This is quite a sophisticated skill for a second grader. Bravo!
After the writing was complete, the kids created two different art pieces to accompany their research, an Arctic explorer and a clay sculpture of their animal (compliments of Miss Kat).
