Mrs. Stroh and Mrs. Sheldon's class went to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge on Tuesday and had a wonderful time learning how animals use their senses. Students also took a nature walk exploring how the world is changing and observed and collected signs of fall. They also measured leaves and created leaf prints.
Mrs. Knudson and Mrs. Lafferty's class is continuing to watch the mealworms into the pupa stage. Students are working on a mural to submit to the SUE T-Rex exhibit at the Anchorage museum for a contest. Thanks to Natasha Johnson for preparing the canvas for the mural.
Mrs. Hanson's class went to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and learned about the habitat and animal adaptation. Students also studied fire safety and other safety issues. A Kenai firefighter visited the classroom for a presentation, and students also got to visit the Kenai Fire Department.
