Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Lower School News: December 4 – 8, 2017

Science News

First graders continue their study of Natural Resources.  Using google maps of Our Clarksville Academy campus, we identified the locations of trees,soil, and the nearby Cumberland River.  Students observe that Natural resources make up our Earth’s surface.  We had 14 different tree samples to observe.

 

Second graders sequenced 22 different Life Cycle examples. We observed changes in both plants and animals as they Live and Grow.

 

Third graders concluded their study of ecosystems by identifying 8 of our Earth’s habitats.  We constructed Food Webs for each ecosystem, identifying organisms (both plants and animals) associated with each one.

 

3rd Grade

Third grade students have been studying food chains, food webs and their components.  Students built multiple food chains, discussed the components and their roles within each food chain, and how they overlap to produce a food web in a given environment.
