Second Graders Visit Harward Farms

Submitted by becky.manning on Mon, 04/17/2023 - 17:11

Second Graders recently had the opportunity to attend Farm Field Days at Harward Farms and had a blast! 

This field trip is a fun and engaging way to learn a lot about farming, nutrition, life cycles, animals, planting and growing crops, and more!  The second graders loved the baby animals and the talking tomato the most. A big thank you to Harward Farms for inviting us and to all of the amazing presenters.

Second Grade Science

Students in Mrs. Southam's class did a science inquiry lesson on habitats. They looked for patterns of living things and wrote down their observations. Each group found out that the animals were separated into categories based on their habitats. They found similarities between the animals that told students more about the environments that the animals lived in.

Mrs. Sanders’ 4th graders have been doing a lot of reading since March was declared reading month at Maple Ridge. They have been working on identifying theme, main idea & details, and summarizing.

Have you been reading? Splash Summit Reading calendars are due tomorrow! Turn them in if you got 500 minutes of reading this month!
