February 2, 2018- Our Porcupine and Hedgehog Study

While reading books by Jan Brett, the children were curious about one of the story characters named Hedgie the hedgehog. During our class discussion, someone posed the question-

What is the difference between a hedgehog and a porcupine?

This lead to an in-depth study about these animals. We listed things we already knew about them and posed further questions to investigate. We read books, looked up information using our iPads, drew pictures and made 3D hedgehogs and porcupines out of clay.
