This week, our classroom was transformed into the Serengeti plains, one of the seven natural wonders of Africa. We learned African songs and poems and read all kinds of fun books -- one was brought all the way from Uganda and three were purchased in Kenya!
Though we focused on animals that could be found on the savanna, we studied all kinds of exotic animals and talked about where they come from.
Armed with a compass, hat, and binoculars, we went in search of the animals hiding in our classroom.
Amid all the fun, we did take some time to practice our reading, writing, and math and use all the fun materials in the classroom.
