Science Lab

First graders investigate the Earth and its rotation. They discover how rotation creates Daytime and Nighttime, using globes and flashlights.

 

Second graders continue their exploration of water habitats.  This week they investigated salt water habitats.  They observed a variety of sea creatures: conch shells, sand dollars, 2 varieties of starfish, 2 types of coral, 3 types of sponges, preserved jellyfish, shark teeth/jaws, and clam shells.

 


 

Third graders continue their study of the earth.  This week they created landforms: mountains, hails, volcanoes, valleys, plateaus, plains, or mesas.
