Biography

Students have observed actual butterflies, ants, chickens, worms, mealworms, and frogs transforming and living in our classroom. Students planted their own plants and conducted experiments on how plant growth is affected when the variables of water and sunlight are applied to their growth; then graphed their data on simple data tables. They used a stream table to observe how streams are formed and how animals (including humans) can engineer solutions that interrupt or increase the flow of the water by building their own dams using homemade water tables made from plastic bins.
