Spring is here! This week VINS came in to teach the students about fossils and they dug for fossils. WMSI also came in and started the novel engineering unit. The students also built houses for the three little pigs and used a fan to try and see if their houses would fall down. Lastly, third graders practiced their fraction unit by following a recipe. The students also enjoyed playing basketball, baseball and soccer at recess.
