Weekly LA Review by Eliana

This week we started working on our Mammal March Madness essays.  We started working on our introductions.  We watched a video to teach us about all the components in an introduction. Attachment-1 We worked on our hook questions, and we shared some of them with the class.  Here are a few examples of our hook questions:

  • Would you like it if you were named after one of your body parts? -Saylor S.
  • How would you feel if your home was destroyed and you had nowhere to live? -Anna F
  • How would you feel if your home was like a garbage can? -Ariel O.

 

My animal is the Sumatran rhinoceros.  Here is my introduction:

How would you feel if you were getting killed just for a part of your body?  You would feel scared and sad, right?  That is probably how the Sumatran rhinoceros feels because they get killed for their meat and their horns.  The Sumatran rhino is a critically endangered animal from the forests of Sumatra.  Would you like to learn more about the Sumatran rhino?

Here is another example of an introduction:

How would you feel if people were destroying your home and killing your family and friends? You  feel sad and mad right. Well that is how the GBT cloud rat feels very day. What you are going to learn is why they are endangered, where they live and habitat, and their family life. -Ava J.

We also read Under the Egg some more.  It has gotten very intense.  Every time Mrs. H. stops reading, everybody begs her to read more.  I will not tell you about the book, because some people who read the blog might decide to read Under the Egg, and I don’t want to spoil the book for them.

This week in Language Arts we picked our read aloud book! We chose Under The Egg. We watched the book trailers for the books. We really enjoy reading this book. It is a very good book.

We also did research about animals for March mammal madness. We learned all about our animals, and we each were assigned an animal. The animals don’t actually fight. Scientists will study about the animals and put what they think will happen.

We learned to use a lot of new databases and websites to learn new things about our critically endangered animals. We have done many new things to learn about March mammal madness.
