Kindergarten Egg Drop

Submitted by steffani.waggoner on Mon, 05/03/2021 - 13:49

Kindergarten students have been learning about various animal life cycles.  We observed caterpillars shedding their skin, forming a chrysalis, and then emerging as beautiful butterflies.  We compared the different sizes of an ostrich egg, chicken egg, and a tiny hummingbird egg.  To wrap up our studies we held our annual Egg Drop.  Students created a way to protect a raw egg from breaking as Mr. Billie launched them off the roof of the school. Then we opened all the packages to see how many eggs survived the drop or ended up as scrambled eggs.  What a fun and exciting day!

Kindergarten students are Busy as Bees!

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Tue, 04/27/2021 - 15:37

Kindergarten Students were as "Busy as Bees" this week.  We transformed our classroom into our own little bee hive as we learned about how a colony of honey bees work together in their hives.  Every student had a job to do to help our hive, including guarding the hive, cleaning up the debri and bits of wax, collecting nectar, supporting the queen and tending the young larva in the nursery.  We had so much fun buzzing around our hive and learning about the life of honey bees.
