Fun with Frog and Toad

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!

Nature Trail Discoveries and FUN! 

Today, all the second grade classes walked the school's beautiful nature trail with Mrs. Clausen. As we were on a scavenger hunt hunting for discoveries in nature, we used our senses along the way and enjoyed God's amazing creation!

Human Body

Our Second graders had a great time studying the human body! They learned so much about the heart, lungs, brain, and digestive system.

The students enjoyed making chest vests to help them learn about the heart and lungs.

The students also enjoyed acting out the digestive process with Mrs.Clausen. See if they can tell you what happens to a hamburger.
