The first grade class learned about Pond Life. We ended the unit by doing an indoor workshop called “Finding Animal Clues.” It was a great experience for the kids and they were brave enough to touch different kinds of animals. The first graders also became detectives and worked together to solve a mystery.

Invention Convention

The first grade class learned about simple machines. They each invented their own machine and then created those machines using various scraps of recycled materials.

During their presentations, they had to explain how this invention would work and why it was helpful. Way to go First Grade!
