The first grade students at Peculiar Elementary performed "Amazing Animals" on March 14 under the direction of Music Teacher Katie Schork. Students learned five songs about animals, including "We Love our Pets," "Redbird," and "Ladybug in my Soda."
In addition to learning the songs, students also completed a research project about their favorite animal. With the help of Art Teacher Jenny Bullock, students created a poster to showcase their research. Digital Learning Teacher Tammy Novak assisted students in creating green screen videos that were featured in the music performance. First graders also invited their fellow students to help the animals at the Raymore Animal Shelter by collecting items to donate to the shelter.
Parents were invited to view the posters after the performance and scan the QR code on each poster that was linked to the student video. This cross-curricular experience was a big hit with students and parents alike!
