Biome Fashion Show Next Thursday
Next Thursday the class will be flaunting some far out fashions to support our biome studies. We are asking kids to dress up for an
imaginative trip to the biome of their choice. Here are the options: ocean, grasslands, temperate forest, tropical forest, desert, polar
regions, wetlands and mountains. Exploring the wetlands might mean wearing rain boots with long pants and a long sleeved shirt to keep away mosquitoes. A trip to the desert might include sunglasses or a sun hat, and cactus-proof shoes. A hiking stick might help for a mountain expedition. Costumes don’t need to be elaborate. Additional props (like field guides or sunscreen) are fine. All that’s required is a trip to your closet and a little creative thinking. We’ve spoken to the kids about dressing up and will continue to help
them generate ideas next week. Our fashion show will be a springboard for expository writing and some fun in-class presentations.

Be on the lookout for a homework folder/home journal to come home with
your child on Monday!
