Shark Dentistry

When I woke up today I never imagined I’d be helping 1st graders install golf tee teeth implants in a lemon shark. Mrs. Hickey’s students are researching sharks and decided to engineer a life size model. Stay tuned for more developments in this amazing project.

Farm Engineering PreK Style

The past two weeks, Mrs. Collin’s PreK students have been exploring the Farm. Some of the concepts they looked at are structures on a farm, different types of farms, and the many jobs a farmer has.  This week they really delved into how cows are milked. In their classroom they made a “milking station” center. They filled gloves with milk, pricked tiny holes in the bottom, and the children squeezed the “utters” to fill the buckets with milk!
