Learning about Dental Health
The third grade classes learned about dental health and my food plate (nutrition) during science class. Mrs. Drees came to talk to Mrs. Priem's class, and Mrs. Roling came to talk to Mrs. Lueken's class. Mrs. Kruse gave all the students toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss to start the unit.
A Visit From Ben & Tony of Bard Materials
Ben Schroeder and Tony Grawe came to school to help us make concrete stepping stones from the materials that were sent back to school with us after our field trip to Bard Materials this fall.
Earth Materials with the FOSS Kit
The third graders are presently working on a unit on Earth materials. They have become geologists and are finding out the minerals that rocks are made of. The first activity we did was dissecting a mock rock and finding out what ingredients make a "mock rock". Coming soon……identifying rocks & minerals. We took a field trip to Bard Materials to further our studies of rocks and minerals.
