Creating animals in Kindergarten

During a Math in Focus activity, the students created their own animals.  They were asked to make a plan of their animal using the Interactive White Boards.  This reinforced our Units line of inquiry: parts of the body.  Once they created their animals they counted the different parts of the body they used, like how many hands, how many legs, and so on.

This was a creative way to build Unit vocabulary, practice one-to-one counting correspondence and number formation.
