Fourth graders had an excellent and educational field trip to the Maine Maritime Museum last week to participate in their Wabanaki program. We observed the differences between pre-Columbian and post-Columbian canoe building techniques, then donned official curator gloves to explore various Wabanaki artifacts as we formed ideas about their uses and how they were made. Lastly, we had the chance to test our fishing skills with the use of a Leister spear as we "fished" for cucumbers! The kids had a blast and learned a lot!
Second graders visited the Outdoor Classroom on Friday.
Today first grade did a pumpkin investigation!
