Red Panda Extravaganza!

Today was the big day!  We finally celebrated adopting the red panda cub from the Binder Park Zoo!

 Here are some of the activities that we did:

About a week ago, we voted for which baby animal we wanted to adopt from the zoo.  Here is the graph.

We are berries and bamboo (pretzel rods), just like red pandas!

We made red panda masks.  I got these from the Red Panda Network.

Next, we located on our big classroom map what part of the world that red pandas live in.  I gave the students a map of Asia to color and they put a picture of a red panda on the part of the map where red pandas live.

We also played a roll and color a red panda game.

We also did a red panda themed short vowel "o" family sort during reading centers.

Have a great Friday!
