What Is First Grade Making Now?

After their dioramas were complete, we brought the 1st grade students back into the Lab to discuss planning and creating rain forest creatures. Their design challenge is to create a creature...either from their imagination or by adapting a real creature...that would live in one of the levels of a rain forest. Based on the level it lives in, how it gets around, what it eats, and how it finds shelter, groups of students will imagine, plan and create their animal.

Today, the students returned to the Lab to explore ways of attaching pieces of their creature together. This lesson was suggested by a 1st grade teachers because she noticed that in making their diorama, there was tape, staples and glue very visible.

She created a "3-D Attachment Technique" poster that we shared with the students. After a quick discussion of what we were going to do today, the students got right to work.
