The month of September has been an extremely fruitful month for the students and educators in room 127. More-so than we could have even hoped!
We have already begun sharing with you about our two projects (The Dot Project and Beautiful Stuff Project), and now I would like to write about the start of one of our inquiries. We are currently also exploring another inquiry that has unfolded, however I will have to save that for a separate post.
In the summer I was generously given a rabbit for our classroom. She was a donation from a loving family at my former school Sixteenth Avenue P.S. Thank you to Shirley Ziv and her lovely daughters for giving us the opportunity to care for this very special pet!
It was our hope that this new class pet would provoke the students' curiosity and lead to a new inquiry.
We began by observing the students' reactions and listen to their thoughts...
Then the students observed the rabbit and began to ask questions...
This was followed by our first question for investigation: How can we care for our new class pet?
|After a bit of research we gave the rabbit a slinky to|
play with, fresh vegetables to eat, a litter box,
and an apple tree branch to chew on.
Thank you Mrs. Gervan and C.H. for bringing us the
slinky and special rabbit treats!
What emerged was "Bunny World."
