Making a TV show

Tish cameraOur 21 Century students are making a TV show in collaboration with PCTV focusing on “reptiles”. They have the background information, did their research, discussed their research and did a little of the filming. Next we are going to practice the scripts and do some filming!

We ask you this, “Why did the turtle cross the road?”

Making Terrariums

making terrariumsWe added our compost that was brewing all winter to our terrariums last week. It was a sunny but cold winter day and it was nice to get our hands dirty!

The weeks before the kids used clay to make animals and figures for their terrariums. We talked about how plants get their energy from the sun through photosynthesis, how they grow from seeds, spores and dividing, and what the seeds and stems look like up close. Fun stuff. The kids loved to read to each other from books, handouts and directions. Great kids.
