It also happened to be an IPI Data Collection day, so we had teachers coming in and out at random times to see what was happening in the classroom. They should have heard a LOT of discussions about whether or not a dolphin is a fish, where owls should go (with birds, or with forest animals), and so on.
Each group then had to draw a map of their zoo. They LOVED this activity. Here are some pictures of their zoos. Nobody got completely finished today, but they've got the layout down. They really just need to add color and then they'll be finished.
|I like this one because they didn't make it just a rectangle.|
