Winter Clothes-Interactive Writing

For the past few weeks, we have been learning about winter.  Even though our highs lately have been in the 70s, we can still dream (and learn) about snow!  We read the book, Froggy Gets Dressed, by Jonathan London, and discussed the clothing Froggy wore to keep himself warm and items that we wear.  We then used interactive writing to write the title of our poster, "These Clothes Keep Us Warm."

I let the students come up throughout the day to add pictures to our poster and try to write a label for their picture.

We also added a strip of paper to their Science Journals that said, "We wear special clothes in the winter.  These are the clothes that keep us warm".  The students then drew their own pictures in their journals.
