Throwback Thursday

Cara, from The First Grade Parade, began Throwback Thursday a few weeks ago. This motivated me to look back at my old blog and inspired me to begin again. I am planning on deleting Langston's Learners, but not...quite...yet. As she stated, blogging is an "online scrapbook." I've enjoyed looking back at my little scrapbook. I decided share one from Sept. 2011 because I will be having these little cuties again in class this fall. Our "What's Alive?" unit was always one of my favorites when I taught first grade.

One thing that scientists do, is use their senses. After several rainy days, we were able to become scientists and use our senses to explore the world around us. With a recording sheet and magnifying glass in hand students explored the area around our school. Students recorded something that they saw, heard, smelled, and felt.


And we had fun too!!!

  1. Great post! You've got to go and see my entomologist art project. It looks just like you two little scientists with their magnifying glasses! Thanks for sharing
