1st-Grade's Animal Habitats

Houston's 1st-Graders had so much fun last week learning about animal habitats. This hands-on collaborative project was based on our Wonders reading theme "Animals At Home." After reading all about animal habitats, the students chose animals, researched, and wrote about them.  The kids then created their habitats.  They worked well in teams, sharing and helping each other, especially with their research.

Technology in the Classroom

Mrs. Mann's 6th-grade science class has been busy, again, using the school's technology to create Power Point Presentations for their science projects.   Naomi did an outstanding job with her Power Point Presentation on Early Astronomers.   This is just another example of the amazing things that are happening at Houston Elementary School!
