Level 2 Role Models
Years 1 and 2 were very lucky to have a visit from a special Guest Speaker last week; Natalie the Vet. Natalie showed us all a PowerPoint of what she does at her clinic, what some animal x-rays look like, and answered questions about why she likes being a Vet. The students then used a ‘Like, Dislike, Challenges’ Graphic Organiser, to record their thoughts about the visit.
Natalie the Vet
Today at school, Natalie the Vet came to speak to us about being a vet.
First, Natalie told us how she went to school to become a vet. Next, she told us that her main job is to x-ray animals. The x-rays show if an animal has swallowed something bad, like a fishhook. Then, Natalie showed us x-rays and we had to guess the animals. Lastly, she talked about her role model. It was her science teacher. The science teacher shared lots of knowledge and inspired Natalie to do her best.
I loved how Natalie the Vet is kind to animals. I really liked the x-ray guessing game.
