Beyond the Illustration

Students in 2nd grade at Riverdale Heights are exploring the ocean.  Over the last several weeks, they’ve been researching sea animals!  Students partnered up and found out facts about creatures like the pufferfish and seahorse. Explaining what they've drawn helps with speaking skills and allows students to think through why they included certain items in the illustration.  Other students giving feedback encourages thinking and hones constructive commenting skills. While the video is dark, it’s worth listening to hear how students help each other with their final illustrations based on their research.
