all of the 2nd graders at lucy's school have been studying animals and their classifications (mammals, insects, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish). For their final project, they picked an animal and had the option of creating a diorama, powerpoint or poster. Each had to depict the animal in its habitat and address its life cycle and place on the food chain (mainly - what it eats and what eats it).
Lucy selected the panda and had a great time studying about them. we built a diorama using one of her stuffed pandas. a little foam, plastic bamboo and paper mache and we had a great panda habitat! now lucy's toy pandas will have a place to play!
