The kids had a great time at King Kong yesterday and today back at school they completed their Empire State Building models ( Some were a bit wobbly...more like the leaning Tower of Pisa) and started art responses to the story. Crayon melt pictures of King Kong in the jungle of Skull Island and dioramas of Kong bursting through the wall.They also completed puzzles and quizzes I developed and created some of their own using Discovery Puzzlemaker. We watched a bit of the original movie ( colorised) on You tube and finished reading the novel. later we'll make some plastic models of bi-planes like the ones in the movie.
It was very chilly today. I think it got to 9 Degrees today but the sun popped out which made it one of those beautiful crisp winter days in the country. I got the grounds mowed today, the school always looks better after that.
