Once in a Lifetime Opportunity!

Students at NWC were able to touch actual moon rocks and samples of meteorites during a space presentation in the library. Pictured is Mrs. Cedio using a globe to explain to students where meteorites are likely to fall if they do not completely burn up as they enter the Earth's atmosphere.

This month, students participated in a variety of activities. These included story time, learning about Caldecott-winning books, Dictionary skills, Science Investigation Stations, and Escape Room Activities over Nonfiction Text Features.
