The Media Specialist at Buddy's school is awesome. She comes up with the most interesting, creative and adorable activities. She was the one who pulledoff the Ellis Island Immigration Day for the 2nd graders last year.
This year, the 1st graders put on a zoo. The students were each assigned an animal. Buddy came home one day and proudly declared he was going to be a gorilla. He needed a costume. The school said we could be creative, or not. It didn't have to be some elaborate, expensive costume. I thought we might be able to get away with black pants and shirt, with a mask. Buddy would have none of that. He told me to order a gorilla costume from Amazon. (insert eye roll)
I'm happy to tell you I was able to find an amazing gorilla costume for less than I was expecting. If you have been following us for a while, you might have already seen the costume... Buddy wanted to have a photoshoot when the costume arrived. Click here for that one.
Finally, the zoo day arrived!
The Media Center was transformed into the most adorable zoo. The tables were overturned, and they used duct tape to create "cages" to keep the animals in.
Each animal had an iPad in the cage with him/her. The students had studied their animals and written books on the app Book Creator.
Buddy's class did an amazing job!
Rea is 9 and Buddy is 7. Everyday is an adventure with these two! I love them so much.
