Patterns in the sky

One of our topics of study in first grade science is understanding patterns in the sky. We want students to know that the sun and moon rise in the east, seem to travel across the sky, and set in the west.
Recently, Mr. Musselman came to help us with our "Shadows Investigation" where students observed how their shadows changed throughout the day. In the morning, the shadows were longer than in the afternoon.

Farm Field Trip

It was a great trip to Drumlin Farm! We saw many wild animals and farm animals too. We learned how their body parts help them to survive. A saying that helps us think about if the animal is a predator or prey:
                  Eyes in front, born to hunt.
                  Eyes on the side, born to hide.
