Bird Study in Second Grade!

I’m extremely excited for the summer.  School is out and that means… lots of blogging and adventure time! It has been one incredible school year – the sweetest, most empathetic students I have had and we are closing 2nd grade with some fun, fun projects. As part of our social studies integrated unit, we study birds of New York City. It’s amazing how children are fascinated with animals, in particular birds – even pigeons. Through the unit, there was a lot of inquiry based project work. They questioned, they answered, they wondered, they reflected. The beauty of a study like this is that the learning never stops and neither does the engagement. With tons of field experiences, guest teachers, readings, and academic projects, the children continuously collaborated and built strong relationships with one another.  The motivation behind each of their work and drive to succeed was astounding!  So here are a few pieces of work that I took pictures of and thought I’d share with you!  (note: none of these were edited or completed yet! I just snapped as I went along.)
