Week of Oct. 28

We had a great time on our field trip to Meadow Farm last Friday! Students enjoyed rotating to different places around the farm and learning about life in the past.

As we continue our science unit on animals, students will be doing a fun, in class, project. Each student will pick an animal to research and then they will have the opportunity to make a diorama including their animal and what it needs in order to survive.  Students are asked to bring in a shoe box in order to make this animal diorama. Please send in a shoe box by Wednesday, October 31st. A letter with more details was sent home on Friday.
