Biomes of Asia
The Lower Elementary East students worked diligently to learn about the biomes of Asia. They worked together to lay out cards describing different plants, animals, foods and people of Asia to match their specific biome.
Third grade students worked with Kindergarten students to build the tallest towers they could create using popsicle sticks, model magic, straws and tape.
Students continued their studies of Asia with a presentation from a parent about South Korea, and ongoing biome maps.
