First Graders do Research!
Did you know groundhogs can whistle? The first graders at Sevilla Primary do! This February our first graders wrote a research paper on groundhogs. We learned about their diet, their habitat, and other interesting facts. Can you believe that groundhogs don't drink water? We learned that this is because they get enough from the green leaves they eat. Our little zoologists took notes about this furry critter and wrote sentences describing all they learned. Then they applied capitalization and punctuation rules to edit their paper. Finally, a groundhog illustration was added. It was a great experience to write about such an interesting animal.
