Thank you Kriscia for sharing the wonderful things you do each and everyday in your class! When I read about the yarn activity, I had to smile. I have been using the same yarn activity to point out how plants and animals are connected in a habitat. I ask the students to take on the role of a certain species and then they toss the ball to a plant or animal they need for survival. They can actually see how important and connected each living thing is to one another. I think it is even more powerful to use with our students to point out this same idea. Wonderful!!!
