An Exploration Since its inception in 2005, Exploring North Carolina has been watched with particular excitement by students, teachers and school administrators across the state. Each episode in the series — a unique partnership between the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, UNC-TV and Natural World Productions — is a mini-adventure featuring detailed information on the plants, animals, geology and history (natural and social) of North Carolina’s greatest places.

Now, thanks to the support of the William R. Kenan Trust, DVDs containing selected episodes of the series are being delivered at no cost to middle and secondary public schools statewide. A dedicated group including teachers, naturalists from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and staff from series creators Natural World Productions, have been working for the past year to segment a dozen ENC episodes into smaller topic-driven chapters.

Textmapping. Before I begin. . . what a long week it was! Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have been swimming in work and haven't had a moment to post anything. In the past week, I have created and/or significantly revised 48 different literacy center activities, eight activities in six different literacy areas. That means thinking of what I need them to be, then typing them up, putting them in folders, and listing all the extra materials and copies I need to gather in school to complete the centers. I'm posting today about an instructional technique I used in class this week with great success.

Have you tried TEXTMAPPING? Here's some background info from The Textmapping Project explaining exactly what it is: (If you click on the the link above, it will take you to their site, which has a wealth of information.) Textmapping is a graphic organizer technique that can be used to teach reading comprehension and writing skills, study skills, and course content. Centers Archive | Mrs Lodge's Library.

Did You Know? Mini-Research Project. I have used these Did You Know? Facts in my classroom for several years in several different ways. Because I am only teaching literacy this year, I haven't been sharing them on our weekly Science board, but I wanted to incorporate them some way. Next week, we begin our big research project around Colorado Animals (read more about past years' work HERE), so I decided to incorporate these facts as a warm-up to internet research! Here's what you'll need for this quick project:Did You Know?

Let Me Think : Adventures in a School Library. It all began with Scaredy Squirrel, an unofficial mascot here in the library. I'd been wanting to start some inquiry with the primary grades, and decided to begin a unit in which we got to know a lot more about an animal we see every day. We began with a very standard approach. We discussed what students already knew, or though they knew, about these animals. Everyone was able to share in the discussion as we described what squirrels are like, where they live and what they do. Our inquiring minds then produced a great deal of questions they had about squirrels. The following week, we read a factual book in which we learned that squirrels are rodents, that they have only four teeth that never stop growing, that they use their tails to balance, and many other interesting facts.

But they had more questions! We talked a bit about the many ways we can find out answers. The final question, about where in the world squirrels live, invited another type of information seeking.
