Started FIAR with the Story About Ping- talked about where the story takes place, put our story disk on the Yangtze River in China, discussed avoidance of punishment and the consequences of avoiding punishment (Ping is almost eaten for dinner!), talked about how many people live on the river in comparison to the population of the U.S., talked about how long the river is in comparison to how long it takes to drive to Iowa and back, the width of the river in comparison to the Mississippi, eating duck in China, and buoyancy in the water and what helps kids float.
