The Greatest Show On Earth!!!

Last week we concluded our unit on the circus with our very own.....Kindergarten Circus!  This unit is so much fun for the kids...and me! 
We learned all about lions and completed a brace map.  The kids drew their own lion and made their own individual brace maps to take home.  They always amaze me with what they can remember when they are interested in the subject matter! :-) They were VERY interested in lions!!!!!
We made our own lions on circus stands (trapezoids)!  They decorated their circus stand with crayons and then did a watercolor wash.  Then (of course) they had to write what they have learned about lions.
We graphed our favorite circus acts on our classroom door!
