BPY Kindergarteners Research Animals

In conjunction with continued studies of Parshat Noach, BPY kindergarteners turned into researchers exploring the animal kingdom and learned some pretty big words—nocturnal, (active at night), diurnal (active in the daytime) and crepuscular (active at dawn and dusk). Then the class divided into three groups each researched an animal in one of these categories. They also used descriptive language to write about their animals. Soon the children will have the chance to become teachers and share what they have learned with the rest of the class. Students learned many interesting facts and trivia about bats, giraffes and lions. Did you know that a lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles? Bats don’t see but find their way in the dark using echolocation and a giraffe’s stride is 15 feet. The children’s stride averaged only three feet!
