Ms. Linh's third graders had the honor of presenting their Pages presentation accompanied with a diorama to their Kinder Little Buddies from Mrs. Cortez's class. Students were asked to research their choice of biome, provide information on the biome, and create a diorama to three dimensionally and visually support their learning. The Kinder Little Buddies learned lots of interesting information about various biomes!
