|Students created birds for bird watching.|
|Lots of vocabulary available for the students to support their writing.|
|More birds to watch.|
|Our Central Park food stand. Students are using money and writing menus here.|
|Our students can follow different trails (straight, zig zag, diagonal, red, yellow, green) in Central Park.|
|The students have loved bird watching using binoculars...|
|I.S. and I.D. wanted to record how many people come to the food stand. They decided to keep track using tallies.|
|Or in some cases, people watching! They are experimenting with the binoculars and have found out one direction the birds (or people) are close and the other way they are far away.|
|Creating a map of the trails in Central Park.|
|Writing wonders about the park.|
Social media has been so wonderful in sharing our learning with families and teachers. We've started using social media to help us learn! We tweeted our wonder to the @centralparknyc account. We are so grateful to the people working in Central Park and their kindness in responding to our wonder! Thank you!
Check out our Twitter account (@learninginrm122) to see the full dialogue!
We are excited to continue learning about the real Central Park!

|We watched 'Stuart Little' on his boat race in the Central Park pond. The students wanted to make their own sailboats.|
|While it may seem chaotic, so many great learning moments were happening--conversations, problem solving, identifying shapes and working those fine motor skills.|
|Testing out their sailboats|
