Science Lab

Third graders learn about seed dispersal.  They investigated how seeds travel on animals.  Using a variety of faux fur, they distributed assorted seeds to determine which seeds cling to animal fur and relocate to populate other areas within ecosystems.  Seeds included cockleburs, hitchhikers, winged maple seeds, winged trumpet creeper seeds.  Vocabulary words were pollination, seed dispersal, & adaptation.

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
