Learning About Plants

We're in the middle of a science unit about plants, plant life cycles and photosynthesis. As part of the unit, we are attempting to grow marigolds of our own in the classroom. As of today, we are on day 7 (including the weekend) of this project. Still waiting to see our sprouts and flowers but we're confident they will actually appear and grow. Here is a photo synopsis of how this experiment got started:

Fall Fun at the Zoo!

We took an awesome trip to Washington Park Zoo in Michigan City on October 22, 2013. It was a chilly day but we had a great time walking around and checking out all of the cool animals that reside there. Many photos were taken and compiled to create a slideshow that we shared with other classes in our school. If you would like to view the photos, please click HERE.

We will begin an animal research writing project next week. Look for more info to come from that project soon! We hope you enjoy the slideshow!
