Brockbank first-grade students learned about seeds and plants in class. They had the opportunity to plant seeds in cups and grow "hair" for their own "grass person". The student's cups are left at school for the students to make sure they have water and sunlight. After two weeks their "grass person" had long green hair. Before taking them home some of the students gave their "grass person" a hair cut. It was a fun way to learn about how seeds grow!
Mrs. Cynthia Loreen's class recently finished a science unit on earthquakes. To help them better understand how earthquakes work, the students got to demonstate four different kinds of earthquakes on cakes. The students divided into groups and decorated their cake like either a city, mountain, farm, or island. Mrs. Loreen then showed them what would happen to each cake if there was a certain earthquake. The students really enjoyed the experience but the best part was they got to eat the cakes!
Brockbank Elementary kindergarten students celebrated Easter and spring with several educational and fun activities. One of these activities included making a bunny hat.
