Nobody Likes Me: Bats
This morning we have a Kindergarten class from Hollywood Elementary connecting to the Cincinnati Zoo to learn about bats. Ken was kind enough to tailor his Nobody Likes Me session to just the bats part of the program.
It's so fun to see to the awe on the kids' faces when they hear a voice and just see a logo on a document camera. They get so quiet!
Ken, as always, does a great job of getting the kids talking and interacting from the very first of the videoconference.
Today the kindergarten kids saw bats in the Cincinnati Zoo, answered questions, practiced flying like bats, and learned all about bats! We ended with questions from the students. They have been studying bats, so they had good questions ready. Why do bats hang upside down? Do bats go to school to learn to fly? How high can a bat fly?
The students are building a bat house on Friday, so the teacher asked Ken for advice on where to put the bat house.
Ken was really sensitive to the attention span of kindergarteners and worked with the teachers even during the program to make sure the length and discussion covered what they wanted to learn.
