Grade 1 create shelter for Lucky the Lion

DSC00176.JPGGrade 1 welcomed a special visitor: Lucky The Lion!  He heard about our Unit of Inquiry “How The World Works” and he came with a special task for the Grade 1 students.

Lucky heard we were learning about Materials, their uses and properties and  he thought we would be the perfect people to ask for some help.  He wants us to make him a shelter that will protect him from wind and rain.  Children who want an extra challenge will make a shelter that not only protects from wind and rain but can float Lucky out of the storm.  This will be used as our Unit’s Summative Assessment.  The Grade 1 students are super excited to start building and use their knowledge to make a perfect shelter for Lucky!
