Last week I noticed that some of the students were very interested in alligators. When I asked them if they would like to learn more about them, the answer was a resounding YES!

The staff were feeding chickens to the alligators.
Today we did some brainstorming about what we know about alligators already and what we wonder about them.

Then we looked at some books and watched some videos to learn more.
Here's a link to the video we watched:
