Fifth and sixth-grade students from Pocatello Community Charter School in Pocatello, Idaho created a topographic representation of the environmental impact of the Portneuf River watershed to educate the public at their Environmental Fair.
As part of an “Empathy For The Endangered” studio, students studied how the Black Lace Cactus which once populated the Texas Gulf Coast is now endangered. People recognized the beauty of the blooms that the Black Lace Cactus evolved to protect itself.
Kindergarteners at Schoolcraft Learning Community created these trail signs as a collaborative project after participating in a spring expedition about trees. Since the school plans to move locations in the fall, the goal was to create student work that would be visible from the very first day.
First and 2nd-grade crews at Palouse Prairie Charter School dove into a study of water. They learned about the states of matter and made connections to the different properties of water. They conducted experiments to observe how temperature causes matter to change forms.
Students conducted fieldwork at Bear River Wildlife Refuge and along the Portneuf as part of their effort to become Ornithologists (bird experts). They researched a specific bird then wrote clues about that bird for the reader to guess. An artistic collage served as the answer on the back.
