The highlight of this week was our visit to the high school. It was so fun to watch the high schoolers (I recognized a couple of former CCE students) being so sweet as they explained the bone experiments to my firsties. We finished the week with a fun science SPIN; the kids rotated to each of the 4 first grade rooms to explore 4 different topics: plants, magnets, food chains and motion and forces.
A peek at next week...
