Animal Museum at Gribbin


Second-grade students at Gribbin School recently organized an Animal Museum, which included dioramas, murals and nonfiction books that students wrote on specific animals from habitats they researched in class.

Each class studied a different habitat and researched an animal from that specific habitat, writing a book based on their findings. Each class rotated to a different teacher over five days, learning about different habitats, including the ocean, rain forest, savannah, arctic, desert and woodland forests. Students researched their animals’ classification, appearance, diet, habitat, movement, sounds and babies. Along the way they also found fun facts. On the day of the museum, the students came in wearing clothing related to the habitat studied in their classroom. Parents and administrators were invited to attend the museum, as well as the Gribbin student body as a whole.
