Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working hard on learning to write compare and contrast paragraphs looking at texts, characters, and things around us. This week was the perfect opportunity to compare and contrast Race Horses and Domesticated Horses. We used Reading A-Z’s Wild Horses for the base of our comparison.
To keep the actual races fair, we ran girls heats and boys heats. The top 2 boys/girls from each class raced the other 1st grade winners. Ultimately, two 1st grade winners were name – a boy and girl. As you’ll see below each student race with a stick horse that they decorated and named. They attempted to gallop, but in the end, running was what actually happened. 🙂
