The students in Mrs. Walsh and Ms. Wolf's third-grade classrooms went wild learning about area and perimeter! As part of a multi-faceted Genius Time project, students each selected an animal which they wanted to reside in their zoo. With the help of Mrs. Mutschler and Mrs. Hinish, the students researched their animals and created an informational sign about them.
Then each child designed a zoo containing four animal regions, calculating the area and perimeter of each one. The culminating activity led all the students to the Library Maker Space where they put their creativity and craftiness to use! By the end of the day, the students had transformed ordinary shoe boxes into zoo habitats beyond their wildest dreams! Who knew learning could be so much fun?!
