Animals of Asia

Posted on January 7th, 2012

Our school participates in Interest groups twice per year. We take one week and have an intense study of one particular subject. All other classes are put on hold for the interest group week. The children are able to choose the group that suits their interest. This semester our school focused on the continent of Asia. We were able to borrow a giant map from National Geographic. The map was utilized in many different ways! Some classes had lessons involving longitude and latitude and even built the great wall of China! It is a great way for all of the students, teachers, and staff to come together and work as a team. Our interest group (Kindergarten age) decided to study about the Animals of Asia. We made lapbooks of two of those animals, the Giant Panda and the Bactrian Camel. Other interest groups focused on music, countries (Russia, China) and even Mount Everest. Field trips consisted of lunch at the local Indian and Chinese restaurants. There was even a trip to a fitness center to practice "mountain climbing" on the climbing wall!
I found awesome ideas for the lapbooks here....
