All About Ponds: Week 1

Every year, we celebrate a school wide Oceans Week.  Each grade level studies a different water habitat.  In Kindergarten, we learn all about Ponds!

We spend our first week getting to know the pond habitat and the plants and animals that can be found in a pond.

We share our schema.

We explore real pond water.

We did some fun activities in small groups:
Paper models of pond plants and animals

Pond Art inspired by In the Small, Small Pond by Denise Fleming

Because our school is under construction this year, we were not able to build our pond art habitat as we have in years past.  Here are some pictures of our display from last year.

Stay tuned for our pond fun from week 2!
