  • Kindergarten Animal Unit

    Our Kindergarten classes have started their final unit of the year–the Animal Unit. Each student selects and researches an animal in books, auditory encyclopedias, classroom discussions, videos, class projects, imaginary play and more. The class studies the animal kingdom and animal classifications. A class trip to see Noah’s Ark at the Skirball Center offers inspiration for animals and habitats.
     
    Through a hands-on approach, children learn facts about their animal including the animal’s diet, defense from predators, habitat, and classification, and create a book report. Parents are involved in a maker project creating the animal. They help their child shape, tape, and papier mache´ the animal. Then, in maker class, students paint and accessorize their animal and place it in large student-created habitats made from recycled materials.
     
    The goal of the animal unit is to have each child understand how to research a topic and to know facts about animals.
