7th graders worked in teams to make meiosis models.
8th graders each had to make a 3D representation of an atom. Mmm...
The Jacksonville Zoo also visited campus this week. They brought some friends with them to share with our 1st and 2nd graders.
There may or may not be a tarantula in that little box.
The program by the Zoo was focused on animal adaptations.
