Mrs. Overturf's kindergarten class visited Mrs. Sotelo's class for a rock festival Monday. The older students helped the kindergartners rotate through four activities involving rocks. Students were able to sift for fossils, classify rocks, make fossil jewelry and have their pictures taken with a 500-million-year-old trilobite. These activities coordinated with the kindergarten study of the earth and space.
Mrs. Larned's first- through third-grade class is busy with its Asia studies. Each student is creating an island in their choice of Asia locations. Students will decide if their island has mountains, rivers, deserts, tropical forests, temperate forests or grasslands. They will figure out which animals might live there, what the people's shelters might look like and how the inhabitants will meet their basic needs.
