Research Projects

The children were amazing presenting their research projects these past two weeks! They worked so hard during class on their research reports and then presented a project they worked on at home. We had so many interesting presentations. What a great way to wrap up the school year, they all shined!

The Montshire Museum

The Montshire Museum of Science is a hands-on museum located in Norwich, Vermont, with more than 140 exhibits relating to the natural and physical sciences, ecology, and technology. We had such a great time despite the cold rainy weather. We were able to explore outside during a light drizzle.  
A woolly mammoth with fur that is a foot thick, a tiny horse that bounds like an antelope, a seven foot tall carnivore that has the head of a giant warthog—we met them all on our outside walk!
A favorite exhibit was all about bubbles! Science in Soap is a completely new and re-imagined exhibition that incorporates pure experimentation, hands-on learning, and a touch of whimsy!
