We completed one of the two notebooking research pages each Friday in class. The first week, the kids also completed the
Walrus Folder activity.
Walrus Folder Activity...to see how to put the Sea Creatures Research Journal together, click HERE!
We ended this chapter by making our own Walrus Craft and writing about what we learned and remembered! The kids were encouraged to find some other interesting facts other than the ones we learned in the chapter...like, did you know a Walrus can have between 400 and 700 whiskers?!?!
The kids were super amazed by that! We even looked up close up pictures of a Walrus and they DO have a ton of whiskers!
I saw a pic of these Walruses on the internet but there was no pattern for them so I made up my own...here is a scanned in copy of my own pattern for you to use. They are easy, peasy. Just need 2 shades of brown construction paper, plus a small bit of white and cream construction paper too. You could also substitute large googly eyes if you didn't want to have kids make their own eyes.
I think the Walrus looks super cute if you had the head turned horizontal or vertical! Works both ways...and don't forget some yarn for all those whiskers!
