One of the things we did on the last day of school was to learn more about Reindeer/Caribou. We watched the Polar Express later that afternoon, but I wanted the kiddos to learn more about these amazing animals!
We made a venn diagram to show the differences between Real and Fantasy Reindeer. I was very careful to define fantasy reindeer as all reindeer in movies and on tv, not Santa’s reindeer–a slippery slope I did not want to go down. 🙂
We also measured to see if we were taller or shorter than the average reindeer (4 feet tall). The kids were split about 50/50 tall/short wen we compared. I was just happy that I was taller. 🙂
