Science Buddies

We were so excited to be paired up with Mrs. Szerba's fifth graders as our science buddies this year! The fifth graders took turns introducing themselves to our students and then the first graders got a chance to introduce themselves. They each shared something special about themselves or one or two things that they liked. Then our students walked around and had to ask several questions to the fifth graders, such as "Did you go camping this summer? Have you ever been to another country? Did you see the movie, Brave?" This was a great mingling activity for the students to interact and get to know one another a little bit. After that, Mrs. Szerba allowed the students to touch and hold an egg that the class chickens had laid that morning. We will get to see and learn a lot more about their chickens as the year continues.

  1. I think 5th grade partners are the BEST! I don't know who learns more, the 1st graders or the 5th graders!
