Mrs. Sumsion's students had fun exploring microorganisms today as they rotated through six centers. 1. Making flip books showing how microorganisms move. 2. Watching a video of microscopic pond life and identifying it on a master diagram. 3. Looking under microscopes at prepared slides. 4. Creating their own germs (drawings & explanations). 5. Searching for answers to questions in a science magazine on cells. 6. Labeling and color coding a microscope diagram.
Lovette Marchbanks, representative from United Way of Utah County (Everyday Learners Initiative) was at the first two hours of SEP Conferences. She offered each student a free book. Parents were given information about reading together everyday. Parents are children's most important teacher!
