The first graders are the latest grade to try their hands at Fablevision's Animation-ish.
The students have been learning about oceans and ocean mammals, so we decided to make this an opportunity for them to express their understanding about oceans and ocean mammals.
We had them working in pairs, and as with the second graders, watching the students collaborate was the best part of the project. They had to decide on the ocean mammal, the size of the mammal with respect to the space, any other objects in the picture and when each of then would draw.
Here is a glimpse of our afternoon and their beautiful expressions of ocean mammals. I love how they have used this new voice to speak about what they have learned. (Note to self: turn off the volume on my phone :))
