Earth Week

I hope everyone enjoyed the nice weather and Easter celebrations this long weekend. After last Tuesday’s hail, it was a welcome change. Here are some photos of our visit with Red Runner ducklings and Easter Egg chicks. Students practiced being gentle with them and learned about how they grow, what they look and feel and sound like, etc. All part of our science learning about the observable features of plants and animals. LEPS came and taught us about water on our planet. The main message your child should have come home knowing is this: most of the water on Earth is salt water or ice, which we can’t drink. The tiny part that is fresh water has to be shared by all of us, so let’s take good care of it!
