A little art and some outdoor fun inspired by a wonderful Michigan fall, and celebrating our first snow!
Students did an extensive study on Michigan Native American life. Along with creating dioramas, they designed a Google Slide presentation of a Michigan tribe of their choice.
DK has been studying our environment and habitats. Today, they extended their learning with a visit to the Muskegon Nature Preserve. Students used nets to get a closer look at what’s in the water, took a nature walk to discover and explore their surroundings, climbed trees, and even made bird feeders for all the birds to enjoy!
Dr. Rudy Bartels, PhD Geography/Climatology, joined the Kindergarten classes today via Zoom to help them kick-off their Weather Unit of study. Students learn about different types of weather, the job of a meteorologist, and some of the tools used by meteorologists to make weather predictions.
The Bookmobile was a hit!
