It was a Jungle in There!
Third graders at LHES are all working on demonstrating their understanding of the structures, characteristics, and adaptations of organisms that allow them to function and survive within their habitats. Mrs. Whitney Couillard’s students had an opportunity to show off their insight by creating their own perceptions of what animals’ habitats are like.
Students were able to successfully produce these habitats in dioramas as they had time to research an animal of their choice and learn more about them. According to Mrs. Couillard, “They first explored their organisms' life cycle; next, they looked into that organism's habitat, adaptations, and food chain relationships,” which aided them in constructing the final project with lots of facts, imagination, and creativity. These third graders proudly hosted an Animal Walk and engaged students, administrators, and parents in conversations about their research and expanded knowledge. There were no two dioramas that resembled one another. Each project revealed their uniqueness respectively.
Outstanding work third graders!
