4th Grade News!
Fourth graders are enjoying their study of the structures of the human body. Students have been working to identify the major components of the skeletal and muscular systems, as well as the major organs and their functions. They’ve been reading articles, building skeletons, constructing models, conducting Mystery Science experiments, and participating in the Fit Kids program.
We also toured the State House and the Franklin Pierce Manse. We learned about the legislative and executive branches of government. We also learned about the life and times of Franklin Pierce.
