Things Are Growing In Room 17

Mrs. Rogers from the First Presbyterian Church comes every month to explore the wonderful world of science with each first grade class! It is a blessing to have their support and the students are very excited to work with them. Last month, the class started bean seedlings and this beauty, a large lovely sweet potato. The class have been observing it's growth and are amazed at what a little water can do.

These little guys are our brine shrimp (a.k.a. Sea Monkeys!). I was super excited about growing shrimp. I always wanted Sea Monkeys as a kid, but never really got them, so here we "grow". (giggle^_^). We were able to micro-zoom on them using our ELMO and are going to set-up the microscope camera after spring break. Cool beans!
