Our second graders and many of their parents enjoyed a beautiful fall day at our city’s very own historical Ocmulgee Indian Mounds. The day started with a tour of the museum and an informative video inside. Then we went on a self guided walking tour of the Mounds. Last we came back to the school for a time of working with clay to make pinch pots, just as the Indians had made long ago. It was a great day!

The last few weeks have been full of excitement as our second graders have been learning about archeology, dinosaurs and fossils. We’ve read lots of great books, discussed God’s detailed work in His creation of dinosaurs, and even become real Archeologist and excavated our very own fossils! Take a look at our learning!

Our second graders have been busy reading and learning from the Frog and Toad book series.
In one of the short stories we have read, Toad is trying to make seeds grow by yelling, singing, and reading to the seeds. His patient friend Frog advises Toad to simply leave the seeds alone and give them time, water, sunshine and air to grow.
So, we decided to have an experiment among our second grade classes. We posed the question, "What would make seeds grow the fastest: yelling at them, singing to them, or leaving them alone?"
Each class graphed their predictions.
Then, we set our experiment into motion. One class sang to the seeds.
One class yelled at the seeds.
And the third class simply left the seeds alone.
So, what's your prediction? We will let you know our findings after a few days! Happy planting!
