I was learning how to use diagrams and labels to understand and interpret information. We had to research facts about one of the animals that Michael and his family saw. I chose the porpoise because I hadn’t heard of it before. Now I know it’s like a dolphin. It was easy to find the information I needed to complete the diagram. I think it’s easier to understand a diagram than it is to read about it. My next step is to use diagrams when I need to explain something.
