The second grade students in Gribbin School recently organized an animal museum. Displayed in the exhibit were dioramas, murals and nonfiction books students wrote on specific animals from habitats they researched in class.

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