Come on over to the B-FARM!

In Science, we learn about invertebrates and vertebrates.  Students have to classify types of vertebrates, which are: birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. Another fourth grade teacher in my district said she uses the term "B-FARM" for this and I thought that was a good idea!  So, welcome to the B-FARM!  Today we discussed invertebrate vs. vertebrate, watched a video on invertebrates, and set up our notebooks for each vertebrate. At the top of the page we have a few characteristics about the animal.  Students searched through various magazines to find examples of each birds today!  
This area, which serves as my guided reading area and my desk is a hot mess lately!  I consider to be pretty organized, but lately papers are just laid around.  My goal on Thursday is really go through and organize this area!
