Now that the weather is finally getting warmer, we’re back to focusing on Botany, and more specifically seeds!  Students are learning the parts of a seed, what their functions are, and the different types.  Coming up in May, they will be applying what they have learned by planting seeds in the garden.

Our second year students started their state research project. Each student chose an eastern or southern state to learn more about. This week, they have been writing down facts they want to include in their report.

The third year students continue to delve deeper into their Imaginary Island project.  This week, they worked on writing a five paragraph essay.  They will go through the entire writing process until their paper is ready to be published.
