Chimps of Gombe

Kia loves to check out biographies of famous women scientists and artists.  One of her favorites is Jane Goodall, so I decided to make a project of it.

She watched the Brainpop movie about her, and we checked out a bunch of books from the library. A couple were about Jane, and a couple were stories BY her.  I had her read "The Watcher" by Jeanette Winter to me as her oral reading assignment of the day.  I read "Rickie and Henri" to Rz and Kia.

Then we used the cool illustrations in the book to inspire us to make paper collages for her art assignment.   Here is Kia's.
