Welcome to our blog! We are the children from 2KM and 2KJ at Leopold Primary School in Victoria, Australia. There are 45 of us and our teachers are Mrs Kathleen Morris and Miss Kelly Jordan. We used this space to share all the great things that happened in our classroom in 2011.
Today the students in 2KM and 2KJ worked on mini projects about sea creatures.
Using the netbooks and classroom computers, students researched interesting facts about their chosen marine animal. Some of the animals we investigated were sharks, dolphins, seals, sea turtles, stingrays, octopuses, seahorses and sea stars.
Students found information about the animals’ diets, habitats, lifespans, special features and much more. They had to put the information into their own words and create posters to share what they had learnt.
After researching and writing out some facts, students focussed on the presentation of their posters. It is important to make posters bright, easy to read and attractive. We included colourful headings, neat borders and realistic pictures on our posters. Check out some of the students’ work!
