Toucan Trivia

During our study of the different habitats around the world, we stopped to learn about the rain forest and the fascinating animals that call it home. One of the animals that we learned about was the toucan. One of the skills that we have been working on recently is distinguishing between facts and opinions. After reading informative texts about toucans the kids were given the task of writing one opinion and one fact about these fine feathered friends. The toucan facts were then written on colorful sentence strips. The kids also created a toucan craft to complete our fabulous bulletin board.

The kids also got to pick their favorite rain forest animal to research and put together an animal step book. Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures of these before they were taken home.
