SPECIAL AREA UPDATES

SCIENCE

PK enjoyed their first visit to science lab, meeting all of our class pets, which has grown to an ever larger number: 3 turtles-two different kinds, a leopard gecko, a bearded dragon, a South American tree frog, and two tanks of tropical fish.  They each got to feed the turtles and they watched the tropical fish eat.  Just before school began, our guppies had babies, so there are many different sizes of fish in the guppy tank!  Our second scilab class was about magnets and what types of materials they stick to.  I gave each student a pair of donut-shaped magnets, and a pencil.  The magnets fit over the pencil and can both repel or attract, depending on their alignment.  These ceramic magnets will break if dropped onto a hard surface!
