Taking a break from the labour-intensive activity to survey his farm, which has been in his family for five generations, he is quickly reminded of the age-old adage of his ancestors:
I posted a picture of these little cuties on my FB page the other day and got a few questions so I thought I would do a quick blog post. I also like to do things to promote helping the environment. This "animal adoption" all started with adopting a sea turtle one year.
That was so fun because it had been rescued and then released with a satellite tracker, so we were able to watch and track the travels of our turtle. Next came reading The One and Only Ivan.
Reading that book lead to adopting a silver back gorilla. You can read more about that here: Since then, each year, I have let my class go through the World Wildlife Fund catalog, do a little research, and vote on an animal to adopt.
After the gorilla, the class chose a blue footed booby Last year, my class voted and adopted an Okapi. Which leads to this year Apparently they are one of the most endangered mammals in North America.
AND we were quite surprised to find out there were 2 in the bag and not just one. I have also been able to incorporate all kinds of fun activities around these animals. One year, each of my students went through the catalog and chose an endangered animal to do a research project on.
Then they each made an informational text booklet about their animal. This year the kids were so excited when I opened the package, they wanted to do something right then, so they each took home a note card and did a little fun fact research about our "new additions" and I am putting them on a ring for a fun fact book: If you decide to adopt with your class, I would love to hear about it!
