Students in Ms. Duran and Ms. Jackson’s First Grade class at Willow Creek Academy are transforming their classroom into a rain forest!
Ms. Duran is working through a project based approach, where the students are learning as much as possible about one topic. They have been learning about monkeys, anacondas, and more. With Ms. Brooke, the visual arts specialist, they are in the process of creating some of the set pieces that will be used for their rain forest play in a few weeks.
Essential Questions: How can I be a scientist and an artist? Why are rain forest plants and trees important? What do I NOTICE about them?
