Exciting Authentic Learning in Social Studies

How does your role and responsibilities change when you bring home an abandoned kitten? 

Thank-you Dr. Maddie for answering this question for us. After having watched a powerpoint presentation and participating in several hands-on stations, our grade 1 students are very aware of the round-the-clock care necessary to foster a sweet newborn kitten. They enjoyed making formula, comparing weights to understand how much he has grown since he was found and cleaning a litter box (no real waste inside). Dr. Maddie explained the different stages of development and had documented all the changes for us to see. The one thing that was made clear was that raising a newborn is a big responsibility and a lot of work! It was also obvious that with Dr. Maddie’s expertise Eddy is thriving. Lucky kitty!
