African Elephant on Display!

For the last few weeks, the kids in Jason's class has been working on an Animal Adaption and Habitat project. Basically what they had to do was pick an animal, discover facts about them, build a diorama, create a poster and then do a written paper on this animal. It's been a pretty in depth project and lucky for us parents, most of the work is done at school. The only part us parents really helped with was the poster.

Today, after weeks of working on this, was the kids 'Museum Opening'. All the kids gathered in the cafeteria with their posters and diorama on display. Then parents and other kids in the school could walk around, check out all the displays, ask questions and learn. So fun!!!

Of course Jon and I had to go check out the awesome work all the kids did - especially Jason with his exhibit on the African Elephant!

We'll find out next week what grade he got on his project. All I know is that I'm very proud of him! He came home and researched his animal, typed out everything on his own (I went back in to correct mistakes) and then designed his board and pretty much knew exactly what he wanted. I was pretty much only there for helping him print out the paper, cut it out and glue it together. In my book, that's an A to me!

  1. It's always neat when they start doing those things by themselves. You start to believe that some day they just might become a reliable human being.
    Then they hit puberty.

    Good for him!
