This week, it’s the third graders turn to explore the Outdoor Environmental Laboratory! All third-grade classes from across the district are participating in a “Squirmy Science” field trip and learning about:
🪱 earthworms acting as recyclers and enriching the soil.
♻️ reducing, reusing, and recycling and why it’s important to decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills.
🦟 the characteristics of invertebrates and the important role they play in the food chain.
🦗 how grasshoppers benefit the ecosystem.
Other highlights include a nature hike and worm races (accompanied by obvious squeals of delight)!
