The first graders have learned a LOT through their Habitat enrichment lessons with Mrs. Nugent.
The first graders took part in an outdoor classroom that was focused in our school gardens. They used a lot of hands-on/minds-on learning to explore the different habitats of plants and animals and the role that soil plays. They also learned about different insects and they were able to think like scientists by observing their surroundings and recording their observations in a nature notebook. In addition, they learned about the special adaptations that plants and animals in a given habitat have. Finally, they explored the concept of symbiosis and learned about the interconnectedness of plants and animals in a given habitat.
