We learned about nocturnal and diurnal animals this week. We learned nocturnal animals are awake and feed at night and diurnal animals are awake and feed during the day. We sorted and predicted which animals we thought belong in each category. Then we read Where Are the Night Animals? and checked our predictions. We illustrated on paper plates examples of diurnal and nocturnal animals. The students choose bats as their favorite nocturnal animal so we made bats using our hand prints. We did a shared/interactive writing piece where we talked to our partner and shared out what we learned this week. Then I wrote down what the students told me. When we came to a word wall word, students wrote those.
