Some students spent this years’ Service Day helping Audubon by planting native plants in the wetland garden in Patterson Park.
Amazingly the Bay received an even better grade today than yesterday! The results of our research are below. Two days in a row we saw a bald eagle!
Students had a great time helping Audubon plant some native plants in the Wetland Garden and the Butterfly Garden on Thursday afternoon. We learned about the importance of having more plants in the park to provide a habitat for birds, insects and other small animals as well as the difference between native plant species and invasive species. Several students exclaimed, “This is hard work, but it’s fun too!” The staff at Audubon were very happy to have such fantastic workers to help them with the task!
Today in Science we started our Vascular Plant Experiment. Students began the experiment and wrote down their materials and hypothesis. Ask you children tonight what their hypothesis was and what they hope to see tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for our conclusion and analysis! Students also read about plant stems and leaves on pp. 54-56 today. Read it with them tonight and quiz them on the various parts of a plant!
Today all students were able to access their laptops to assist in their research of their Explorers. MAKE SURE to have a library book on your Explorer by next Monday. We can't always depend on technology as some students found out today! Some were not charged after the previous class used them. We also started a nice Science unit on "Plants". Read over pp. 50-53 tonight with your children. We plan on seeing a diverse amount of plants on our trip to Assateague Island on Thursday! Click on the links to see just how diverse!
