Habitats is one of my favorites.
We've been busy.
I purchased Cara Carroll's Camping Capers unit. It's adorable. The camping aspect is just what we needed to add a little more fun to our habitats lessons. We've been "visiting" our different habitats while pretend camping. The kids are loving it. We haven't used too much of that unit yet. I'm saving all the fabulous s'mores activities for the end of our habitats theme.
October's habitat theme started out with a visit to the desert.
After discussing the trials that the desert climate offers, we discovered the adaptations that desert plants and animals have that allow them to live quite comfortably in this arid and commonly hot habitat. Then we completed an A LOOK at the Desert activity.
After the desert we took a trip to the forest.
We talked about why animals hibernate while we "visited" the forest. Then we worked on the "Nighty, Night Bear!" lesson and craft.
You can grab your own copy of each of these items, too. They are available as individual units....
..and bundled as a complete pack...
The Happening Habitats pack includes a FREEBIE... Sensational Savanna Alliteration (which is what we'll be doing next week) and saves you $2 off of what it would cost if you purchased each separately. Because my followers absolutely make.my.day - I'm giving you the freebie scoop. You can go grab the Sensational Savanna Alliteration file by downloading the preview on the Happening Habitats unit at TpT.
So... the curriculum police are heading our way on Wednesday.
All the big-wigs will be there.
Walking through our rooms.
Can you get a clear picture of what truly happens in a classroom by walking through it for 5 minutes?
There is so much we all want to say - but have come to the realization that there really isn't anything we can say or do to get those who just don't understand...to understand. So much unnecessary stress and unwillingness to speak with (as opposed to AT) those in the trenches.
