GRADES k-2: The goal of this enrichment club is to provide children with an opportunity to learn about various animals from around the world. The club will incorporate literacy, location skills, and art. Informational Read Aloud’s will be used to foster interest and instill a deeper understanding for each animal taught, followed by key terminology to locate them on a map which is an essential skill that they will extend upon as they get older. Students will then engage in a craft using different art mediums and some recycled materials. This will provide an opportunity for them to practice their fine motor skills, as well as explore, extend, and express their unique creative abilities.
