Hic, Hic, Hiccup!

What are hiccups? Honey, Whitney and Davarni wondered the same thing so they went about learning more.
They created a poem to share their learning and recorded it in their own news show. I look forward to seeing more from their news show (If you have trouble viewing this video please follow this link). 
They also created some posters to share their learning which is proudly displayed around our classroom! Well done girls.
