Science Buddies

Our class partnered with Mrs. Szerba's fifth grade students last Friday. These amazing fifth graders are our science buddies. We will be partnering with them throughout the year. The fifth graders showed our students their garden and also allowed them to plant some seeds. They also taught them about embryology- YEP, you read that correctly. The fifth graders are incubating chicken eggs and explained the whole process to our Kindergarteners! We will be invited back once the chickens hatch to observe and learn about them. It is such an awesome opportunity for kids to learn from other kids. We are so thrilled that the fifth graders took the time to partner up with our kiddos! You definitely cannot reproduce these valuable lessons from any textbook!
