My kiddos had such a great time learning about sharks. We used Amy Lemons and Katie King's May Rooted in Reading. The unit is geared for second grade, but I was able to use many ideas for my firsties and will do the rest next year because I am looping up with my class and getting back to second grade. Win! Win! We started out our week with this anchor chart. The kids wrote one thing they thought they knew about sharks on the purple sticky notes. We read through all the shark facts as we put them on our anchor chart. The kids really got a kick out of this. Next, we used the blue sticky notes to write down 1 thing they wanted to learn about sharks. This was very insightful. One thing is true, kids LOVE sharks!!
