Creation Station!

Inspired by Time for Kids, students will be making arts and crafts and playing different games, creating stories around a theme each week. For instance, one week will be about Inspiring Women, and they would learn about how different women changed the world. We might write a story or Mad Lib to tell the story of one of the women, or try one of their inventions. Another week will be about animals. We will be drawing different animals, trying yoga poses of different animals, go on virtual field trips to see different animals in their natural habitat or zoo, and researching/web scavenger hunt about an animal.
