Mr. Musselman recently collaborated with Laura D’Elia, Dan Callahan, and Kindergarten teacher Mellissa Parnell on developing a unit where students explored animal families while learning how to read and glean important facts from notes and other non-fiction. Their full blog post can be found on the PineGlenLTC blog here.

The curious mystery animal gave kids a chance to not only learn about animal families and pick out important facts from reading but make claims using evidence, an important scientific practice! The concept of visualizing data in the form of a graph was also introduced when “Dr. Curious” visited the Kindergarteners to hear their persuasive arguments first hand.
