"Freddie the Fish"

 Miss Kelly and Ms. Jaime's
 classes came together and read
 a fictional story about a fish who
 encounters water pollution.
 Students used various
 ingredients to mock create the
 polluted water.  Students were  asked to recall details and retell
 details from the story.

 

 

      

Before the Activity
As a part of the monthly theme, we addressed citizenship.  We discussed how keeping the Earth clean and protecting the environment, is being a good citizen.  We also read the informational text from the ULS library "Oil Spills."  The students watched YouTube clips about the BP oil spill and cleanup.  After reading, students answered wh- questions and recalled details from the text.
