The Human Body

March 21, 2018

We have been learning about our organs– where they are and what they do.  I’m sure that you have heard the song that helps us remember.  We made some body organ vests and took a trip around to the pre-school classrooms to teach them a thing or two.

Under The Microscope Today

December 6, 2017

Like Mrs. Wanberg says, there is beauty all around us.

For those of you who were thinking that the round objects are micro beads of water, look at the result of pressing on the cover slip– several have ruptured.  Not at all like water.


Any guesses?

November 13, 2017

Happy Halloween!

To celebrate Peace Day we read a book about Peace, wrote about what it means to us, made pinwheels and planted them in the Peirce Peace Garden.

Here is what Peace looks like:
