Husky-tastic Summer Learning

July 9. 2021

Super Science Sleuths

Week # 4 of Summer Learning was completed with a variety of activities.


Tuesday was Space Day and students built rockets and tested them with Carnegie Science Center Scientists. Students also had fun making galaxy slime! We do apologize for all the glitter the students wore home............but they truly loved the slime!


Wednesday was Weather Day. In addition to learning about weather, students were treated to a popsicle painting party with Kelli Emfinger from Paint Your Heart Out.


Raptor Day was Thursday and the hit of the week with students dissecting owl pellets. The faces we saw while the students dissected the pellets to find out what the owl had for dinner were amazing!


On Friday, the Husky-tastic learners traveled back in time to the 1700s in WV with a visit to Prickett's Fort State Park. Dominos pizza was served at lunch!
