Another student shared a book he read at home about endangered animals. He noticed that one of the animals in the book is the whooping crane. To learn more about the two flocks of whooping cranes, read the online storybooks about the Western Flock and the Eastern Flock. We are following the migration of the Eastern flock.
It was fun that students from New Jersey sent Flat Stanley to Barrett Elementary. While Stanley was here, he learned about the whooping crane migration.

Watch the video below to learn about the first words posted on the Kindergarten Whooping Word Wall (WWW). We will be posting more words as we discover more about the whooping cranes. After the last lesson in the Discovery Lab, children suggested we add the words Florida, Wisconsin, Ultralight, People (who help), and Whooping Crane. Do you know why they suggested these words?
