Adopt A Sea Turtle For Earth Day
Our sea turtle project has been up and running. We completed journals together last week writing informational entries. So, I thought I wanted to see how much information the kids retained from the nonfiction books I read along with the journal booklets we wrote. I gave the students some journal paper and told them that I wanted them to do an independent writing on things they learned about sea turtles. I thought the kids did great job with their writings. I took these writings, typed them up, and are going to make an Earth Day Save the Sea Turtles booklet for each child. Here are some independent journal samples:
Once I have their booklets done, I will share what those look like. Our selling of Turtle Water(colored kool-aid) starts in a couple of days. We are trying to raise $25.00 by selling this water so we can adopt a sea turtle. My kids have loved this project which is going to conclude at the end of Earth Day "week".
