After a study of ecosystems, Mrs. Kendall's sixth-graders wrote haikus about different world biomes. Mrs. Biggs, the music teacher, helped the students with their poetry, which they then turned into musical and movement performances. Mrs. Shield's second- and third-graders, who also are studying climates, enjoyed watching the older students' creative renditions about different biomes.
