Mad Scientist meets First Grade

We had an exciting morning with a visit from Scientist Corey! As a grade we watched and participated in a series of experiments on how sound and light travels. This has been a great launch into our next science unit that we will begin after April Vacation.

We discussed what Earth Day is and what we can do to help our Earth! We made a class poster! 

Then we started preparing our seeds that we will plant in our school garden! We are growing beets! We will watch them grow all spring and we will eat them in June!!

Special visit from S.P.C.A

We had a special visit from the S.P.C.A Friday afternoon.  The lady came to share a special felt story about the importance of taking care of animals and the responsibility of taking care of pets.  She also brought a furry friend, a bunny,  for the kids to see!  

The kids were also very excited to donate money to S.P.C.A.  The money we gave was from our First Grade Valentine Card Shop.
