5th Grade Scientists Studying Bluebirds and Human Anatomy

Cindy Cartwright and her energetic and inquisitive 5th grade scientists keep busy with a wide variety of hands-on projects. This week, they began monitoring Tandem's bluebird boxes. Former Middle School science teacher Christine Putnam introduced this type of study to them before Spring Break, and this week they began checking campus boxes for blue eggs, which have been located on nests. Stay tuned for more bluebird details. This week they also launched their study of the human body with an epidermis experiment - "Approximately how much skin does Henry have?" They employed a lot of newspaper and one cooperative human body - Henry - to begin their calculations. More details to come. Check out photos from both studies.
