Feel free to share and let’s keep encouraging them to fight hunger around the world.

 

 

Starting this week and for the rest of the month, our global unit of inquiry will be about the living and nonliving things that we can find in the community and how the climate change is affecting humans and animals (reptiles, amphibians, mammals, insects)

If you have any idea, book or activity, please let me know :)

 

STEP 3: WE SHARE  - STEP 4: WE REFLECT
