As always, "the CAC" is fully of energy and excitement. "CAC" stands for "Communication Arts Center." The facility is HUGE (think an airplane hanger) where there is a giant open space and kids everywhere! So much dancing, singing and practicing filling the room.
Classrooms are always working on different topics inside of the unit. Mr. Szymanski's class tackled the Antarctic food web. The kids worked in collaborative groups to make their part of the web. It was so interesting to see kids get so excited to make phytoplankton and krill!
Penguins are a hot topic in the CAC. It is always fun to look at penguins with kids and see how they move above and below the water!
Speaking of below the water... You have to take a moment to look at the amazing adaptations that has happened to the deep-sea life in Antarctica. I am always learning new things!
Mr. Szymanski's kids are LOVING reading the Magic Tree House book, "The Eve of the Emperor Penguin." The book has all sorts of Antarctica facts. Plus, a little magic never hurt any storyline!
