What's Happening This Week:
This week our students spent time with each of the second grade teachers as we learned about forces (erosion) that change the earth. Students explored how water, glaciers, and wind change earth’s surface. They also learned about the earth’s crust-land and water. Students designed ways to stop beach erosion and enjoyed learning about and studying rocks. Each room was transformed into an interactive area. It was an engaging week.
Our field trip to Tuckaleechee Caverns, Thursday, was awesome! We walked over a mile underground and the students identified stalactites, stalagmites, columns, flow stone, curtains, bacon, and waterfalls, We saw a chandelier in the big room and cave formations that looked like dragons, superman and a princess.
