Stone Soup

I hope you read the newsletter and the posts about Kindergarten Stone Soup on the School web page. Here are a few more pictures of our classroom preparing and then tasting our Stone Soup.

Scientists Observe

We spent some time with our fourth grade buddies on Tuesday observing a small plot of land. Student scientist used hula-hoops to mark an area for observation. The teams looked for living organisms. Students also measured the tallest plant in their environment. The fourth graders noted the observations on a recording sheet. The kinder buddies added the recording sheets to their Science Notebooks.

Audubon Nature Center Field Trip

We enjoyed a great trip to the Audubon Nature Center in Huntington on Thursday, October 2. We learned a variety of ways that plants and animals get ready for winter. Our guide helped us explore the meadow and the forest. Students pretended to be monarch butterflies migrating to Mexico and squirrels burying acorns for the winter. We found many colors of fall near the beaver pond. The field trip touched upon three of our kindergarten science units: organisms, weather and five senses.

The Audubon Nature Center is free and open to the public. The Audubon is a great place to visit anytime of the year.
