Third Grade: oral presentations

Third Grade

In Social Science the children have been working on making travel brochures for an assigned country. They have been working very hard, and the projects are looking fantastic so far!
3B with their projects!

In English we have been working on a group project to create a zoo. The children have researched many different animals, and found out interesting and useful facts about each. For example the climate that the animals come from, the types food that they eat, and the environment that they live in. They will then use this information to create a suitable habitat within the animals enclosure at their zoo. 
If you visit the zoo this Winter, the children will be able to tell you many facts about the animals in English!
