Animals of the Amazon Assembly

One of our favorite assemblies of the year is when Mr. Bob comes with his
animals from all over the world.
I loved our set up this year because I think the kids were able to get closer to the animals.
Our kids were ready for the action!



The first animals from the Amazon lives in this terrarium Mr. Bob is holding.
Inside the terrarium were poison arrow frogs.
These would kill anyone who touched them.
I don't think you can actually see them - even with my super zoom lens!



Mr. Bob always talks to the kids about great science vocabulary words.
He had a great conversation about warm and cold-blooded animals before he brought out
the next animal.

It was a green iguana that has a third eye and is a herbivore.
He also explained what exotic was.



Mrs. Murphy was getting a little too close the iguana for her liking.



Mr. Bob also talked about what the word "invasive" meant in regards to animals.

When this next animal was brought out, Mrs. Murphy and I took off to the
opposite side of the gym from him.
It is a red tailed boa constrictor.
This animal has no eyelids or ears.


Mrs. Kim and Ms. Melodie actually got close enough to touch it.
I had to use my SUPER lens to catch ALL of these shots!


Even Ms. Lisa got closer than I did!


The next animals was the green Amazon Parrot.
This animal put on a show!
It talked, laughed, tried to fly, and carried on for the rest of the show!



Mrs. Becky's favorite was this little guy -
a white nosed coatimundi.
This animal is part of the raccoon family and is an omnivore.
It is just a baby and was just precious!


Mrs. Kim enjoyed feeding it.


The parrot was NOT happy that everyone was paying the coatimundi attention
instead of him.
This was literally the look we got!


This little guy was busy, busy, busy.
It was hard to get good pics of him!



I finally put my camera down when this little one paid me a visit.
It was just adorable and I was ready to take him home with me!
Thanks for the pic, Mrs. Shelby!

STUDENTS:  What do you remember from the assembly?  Which animal was your favorite?  Why?

    1. WOW!!!! What a fantastic comment! You, again, are setting the bar high for the others in the class. I loved all your reasons and find that we have so much in common. One thing I would love to see you work on for next time is using punctuation! Your whole comment was one long sentence. Please remember to use end marks in all the appropriate places! Other than that right now, keep on keeping on.

    2. Hayden,
      Great comment. I love how you gave specific examples of why you liked the snake. You didn't just say it was cool. Very nicely done. Proud of you for that. One thing I would like for you to work on next time is adding ending punctuation marks. Your comment is one long sentence when it really needs to be more than one sentence. Great job, though! Keep it up!

      Da'Kedra,
      Thank you for commenting and telling him what he did well. Fantastic work! Find me for a signature on your card!

    1. Derec,
      You had great sentences! However, I need to know why you thought it was interesting. What facts did you learn about the snake? What was the snake actually called? Great ending sentence! Thank you for using end marks and spelling your words correctly. Also, great job on capitalizing!
