Mrs. Beidermann had her horse truck and trailer at school and invited us to see this amazing set up! She showed us all of the different parts of the trailer and how her horses can be safely transported to different places. We loved exploring!

We were a busy bunch for the last few days of school! We ended our Life cycles unit with a study on ducks! We observed (through video) and read about many kinds of ducks; their habitats and eating habits, different functions and structures that help ducks survive, and their first flight! Most important, we learned why ducks don't get wet!
Our field trip to AppleCheek farm was so fun! We participated in different "stations" where we made butter, went on a scavenger hunt, identified different farm tools, went on a wagon ride and had a picnic lunch. The day was beautiful and we had a real taste of farm life!

Mrs. Palermo, Jackson's grandma, and our school nurse for many years, is also a Quilt Expert! She came into our classroom with a basket full of quilts and shared her expertise with us. We loved looking at her designs, color and patterns. Jackson even helped his grandma work on a very special quilt too! Thank you, Mrs. Palermo for sharing your beautiful art with us:)
