Here you have a power point that can clarify your ideas: Classification To practise it we have played dominoes!
And we have written about chameleons.

Chameleons Practise.

To practise everything we know about chameleons we make different things. Chameleons True False. Chameleon Colours Chameleon Options-lesson 2

ANIMALS. THE MIXED-UP CHAMELEON.

To introduce the topic we will read "The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle.


We review names of animals... I wish I could be smart like a fox!

Then we read a text about chameleons. Did you know that chameleons change colours depending on their mood?

Alcalá de Henares Course

Back from three intense days in which I have learned a lot about how to teach Science within the integrated curriculum.
 I am really proud to take part in this amazing project. Thank you to Louise for such a fantastic course and thank you to so many teachers from all over Spain that I have met and shared experiences with.
  I can say that this project counts with the best possible teachers. It is really motivating finding nowadays so many enthusiastic teachers who hardly believe that this British Council and MEC collaboration assures the best bilingual education for our pupils and who day by day fight for giving children the best .
I am looking forwards to coming back next Monday and putting into practice everything I have learned!
Thank you, of course, to children, parents and colleagues for letting me go and for the part you have in me feeling today a very happy and lucky man.



De vuelta después de tres intensos días en los que he aprendido muchísimo sobre como enseñar Ciencias dentro del currículo integrado.
Me siento realmente orgulloso de formar parte de este fascinante proyecto. Gracias a Louise por un curso tan fantástico y gracias a tantos maestros repartidos por España que he conocido estos días y con los que he compartido experiencias.
Me atrevo a decir que este proyecto cuenta con los mejores profesores posibles. Es esperanzador encontrarse en estos tiempos con tantos profesores ilusionados que creen profundamente que el convenio Mec-British Council garantiza la mejor educación bilingüe para nuestros alumnos y que luchan a diario por ofrecer a los niños todo lo mejor.
Estoy deseando volver el lunes y poner en práctica todo lo que he aprendido.
Gracias, como no, a mis alumnos a sus padres y a mis compañeros por permitirme marchar y por la parte que os toca en que hoy me sienta un hombre feliz y afortunado.

Some advices to take care of your organs.


 We made a list of good advices to take care of  the different organs and senses. In order to do this:
1. We individually put together a  sentence split into different parts.
2. We copied that sentence in a piece of paper.
3. There were five tables, one for each sense, so we moved with our sense to the right  table.
4. Then, we glued together  all the sentences for the same sense in the same sheet of paper.
5. Finally we prepared a poster for all the five senses.
















Taste.



 We learned about taste buds and we tasted some aliments.
-Sweet: We tasted a piece of marzipan.
-Salty: We tasted a cracker.
-Bitter: We tasted dark chocolate and Samuel loved it!
-Sour: Some children tasted some lemmon drops and it was not so good.

Then we selected some aliments and we classified them in different groups:

SMELL.

Smell is a very important sense. It is even more important for many animals.
Look how important smell was for Ferdinand the bull, who preferred smelling flowers than fighting...I prefer doing that too!


Hearing

Here you have some links and photos about hearing. Enjoy!

How the ear works.


We made a model ear with plasticine.



I hope you review the parts of the ear and how it works in order to avoid surprises...
