First Day Jitters!
Today, we started! It was the first day of our 2-week, arts integrated unit called, "Disney on Antarctic Ice." The kids were so excited. The teachers were already tired! We have been working nonstop getting together projects and a script about 7 first grade students embarking on a similar journey of Mr. Szymanski and Mr. Sanders in Antarctica. There was lots of art, singing and learning of the White Continent!
Students also got to begin to learn songs for their various performances! It isn't easy writing lyrics for music that little ones will sing! The students are singing about the Penguin Post Office at Port Lockroy.
And the acting!
And then some kids learned about the characteristics of penguins and seals found on the peninsula!
