Have you ever petted a bobcat or swum the Great Barrier Reef alongside a sea turtle? Well, Trinity’s 3rd and 4th graders have with their latest science project!
Last week Mrs. Tech’s 3rd and 4th graders put on a special exhibit for the entire school. They transformed their classroom into four distinct biomes: tundra, coral reef, desert, tropical rainforest, each with featured animals. Parent and student guests were invited to visit the classroom and were greeted at the door with a program handed out by Mrs. Tesch herself. They were then free to wander around the “globe” to explore each environment and its residents. The 3rd and 4th graders served as their field guides. There were snowy owls and ermines, a giant Emperor Scorpion, and Poison Dart Frogs living next to Lion Tamarins and sea turtles; all made out of recyclables.
While guests visited the biomes and their residents a student-designed slideshow played in the background displaying animal facts and other images of the respective animals. The children were all eager to show off their projects to not only the parent visitors but also the other classes that stopped by throughout the morning. For one morning, thanks to our 3rd and 4th graders, Trinity had its very own exotic animal zoo right on campus!
