Animal Research Reports & Google Drawing Avatars

This term, we have been learning about Endangered Animals. We visited Healesville Sanctuary. This was where we encountered many Australian animals that are currently threatened or endangered.
We chose one of these to be the center of our research.
We were each given a grid to begin our planning. We jotted down information or keywords we came across whilst researching.
We then worked on writing paragraphs and understanding the structure of an Information Report.
We each write a Report about our chosen animal. We also used Google Drawing to create an Avatar of the animal. W
Check out our hard work!

Pig the Pug – Book Week continued

As one of our Book Week activities we read the story, ‘Pig the Pug’.

We created our own pugs with our buddies using coloured squares of paper. It wasn’t as easy as it looks.

We also created our own version of the sequel to the story using Storybird. Check out some of our stories. There are many more to come.
