The first graders have finished researching all about sloths.  They learned a lot of interesting facts:  where they live, how many babies they have, what they eat, why they may look green, even their bathroom habits!  They spent time listening to A Little Book of Sloth by Lucy Cooke, read about sloths in PebbleGo’s database, and watched some videos on sloths from National Geographic Kids.  Research happens in many different formats!  The final piece of the project was creating a book using Bookemon.  Each student chose one fact to share about sloths and drew a picture about that fact.  I scanned all the artwork from the students and uploaded them into the book.  Together we created the title and chose a picture for the cover.  This was a great project for everyone.  Check out the books the students created here and here.
