First Graders study insects
News & Notices:
Open House on SATURDAY, JANUARY 24th, 9:30 am - 11:00 am for prospective kindergarten through sixth grade students and their families. For more information - click here

Our first graders are studying how insect adaptations solve problems within the environment. Insects must build colonies, cut leaves, haul materials, and defend themselves from predators. Our budding scientists study how insect bodies resemble the meshing parts of simple machines in order to fly like mosquitos, zip across water like a water strider, tunnel like ants, and cut, carry and chew vegetation. In addition, they are studying the insect drawings of the German artist Maria Sybell Merian and then studying insects and creating their own sketches. Click here for more.
