After visiting Patuxent Wildlife Refuge, 3rd viewed their photos and used descriptive language to debrief their visit. Using various strategies, such as pair/share, a graphic organizer, and sensory imagery, students worked to develop a WORDLE. WORDLES are a fun way to show what you have learned and were very well done by our students. Below are some pictures showing third graders working in a collaborative setting.
