BP1_Welcome to my blog.

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am having a great day too. In my class we are learning about ocean animals. My students liked researching people and completing a biography poster. Now, they are going to research an ocean animal and create a diorama or a 3D model of their chosen animal. I am so excited to see what creativity they produce. The goal is to research and present the research in a creative and meaningful way. I remember the first time that I did this unit. It was so exciting to learn about the ocean and its habitats. I learned that my favorite ocean animal is the jellyfish. It is so neat. It moves through the ocean by sucking in water and releasing the water. Also, they come in so many beautiful colors. For an animal that is so pretty it has a mighty sting to keep away prey.

Tell me about your favorite ocean animal. What is it? What is interesting about it?

  1. Very interesting. Once again, sounds like a lot of fun, and I think your students are enjoying school.
    My favorite ocean animal is the manatee. It is an endangered mammal that is having difficulty coexisting with humans and our boats. They tend to get hit because they are slow moving. Very sad.
