Learn to recognize shapes and patterns and the GREEN BLUR will reveal itself as a plant community of distinct individuals living together in an intricate ecological system. 

Take the challenge next Wednesday, May 20th in the Science Lab.

Prizes for winners!

And the winners ARE...

The 3rd grade are ALL winners in my book.  Taking this quiz was a challenge by choice activity, and more than half the class accepted the challenge.These kids ROCKED this! They studied hard and it showed.  Six students earned 100% on the quiz, with two students who went above and beyond to include latin names.  It was a tough call, but the Wild South prize went to Hannah Rosenfelt for going above and beyond AND for inspiring her fellow classmates to the same.

Hannah displayed tenacity in her pursuit of this knowledge.  She not only knew all 11 plants, but correctly included one latin name (spelled correctly) AND wrote one identifying characteristic about each plant species.   Nice work Hannah!  Awesome job 3rd grade!

In the teacher category, Ms. Deidre took the prize with 100% on the quiz, followed closely by Cat Fletcher and Fynn Crooks. Thanks for participating, teachers!
