We have been very fortunate in the past week to have excellent guest speakers coming in to discuss science topics with the students. A special thank you to Alyssa the scientist who came in to discuss DNA and genetics and Dr. Rosenbaum who presented and answered many of the students questions about the human body.
Today in science students have been learning about the human body through inquiry based questions. Students discussed "Is Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy movie) more animal or plant? We then connected this to "What similarities does Groot have to Humans? Could Groot survive on Earth?" It would be wonderful if you have the time to please discuss this inquiry question with you child. Their findings were very interesting!
