Time to Show Off!

As many of you are starting a new school year, here in Australia we work calendar years so are well into the swing of things - heading towards the end of Term 3 with only 13 more weeks of school to go for the year. I teach in an International Baccalaureate school, (have I ever mentioned that?), and my class loved one of our recent units of inquiry (theme or topic). Our central idea was "Species around the world are threatened with extinction" and the children got so into it, they groaned when it was time to introduce our new unit!
I just had to show off some of the fabulous work the children did! I can't believe Grade 3 children can produce such wonderful work! Here are their Endangered Animals models they made at home.
Orangutan, Giant Panda and Pygmy Rabbit - so cute!
Penguin, Kiwi and New Zealand Gecko (just beautiful, the boy used balsa wood and a knife to carve it out!)
Crocodile and Dingo (the kiddos in my class are crazy about Lego!)
Bilby and South African Wild Dog (this was made from old teddies they got at the tip shop! The body was made from an egg carton!)
Didn't they do a fabulous job!
At school they completed a report about their endangered animal. This one was amazing! I taught this girl in Grade 1 too, she is such a delight!

If you have a minute, check out this post on Mrs Poultney's Ponderings - she has made a great find!
