Plants vs. Animals
Second year Lower Elementary East students compared and contrasted the characteristics of living things with plants vs. animals.
With the newest addition to their class library, Amazing Women (thanks to the Waterfront School Foundation!), the Lower Elementary East students compared and contrasted the lives of two inspiring women in history, Helen Keller and Frida Kahlo. Then they used their knowledge of Venn Diagrams to help them keep their thoughts organized.
The Lower Elementary East first year students started investigating reptiles as part of their continued Zoology studies. One student brought in her favorite narrative from home starring a turtle as the main character.
