Back to our unit! Here are a few of the things we covered:
We learned about coyotes and ED made a coyote mask. We read several books with the coyote as one of the main characters: The Three Little Javelinas, The Tale of Rabbit and Coyote, and Coyote Raid in Cactus Canyon.
|Here ED helped make a rattle snake (with jingle bells in the tail to make it rattle!). ED just loves sewing at the moment so this was a great project for her!|
|Obviously I helped ED with glue portion of her sand painting. DD and LD did sand paintings as well.|
|DD and LD wanted more information about what the cacti looked like and what exact colors they were. They went off and read quite a bit on their own. I love hearing, "did you know..."|
|DD's lower picture has a bird nesting in the cactus because of the reading we were doing as she made her picture.|
|We learned "red on yellow kills a fellow!"|
