First grade has been studying plants all semester in Science Lab. We have also looked at form (something's shape) and function (what something does). Lastly, we read Jerry Pallotta's Who Will Plant A Tree? and saw how different animals help disperse, or spread, seeds in nature. From a camel spitting out a date and a squirrel burying an acorn, to a moose snagging pear branches in his antlers and other animals unwittingly carrying burrs in their fur, all sorts of animals help spread seeds. Beginning April 19th, parent volunteers are needed in the Science Lab to help assemble student craft projects. We are making devices from craft supplies, inspired from nature, to spread sunflower seeds around the school. Please contact your student's room mom to sign up!
