What a great way to spend the afternoon - in a pool with all your friends. It appeared that everyone had a fun time splashing, diving and sliding at the Walnut Grove Pool today. Exercise of any kind is important each and every day.
Cells, cells and more cells. As students began to dig into plant and animal cells I could see the wheels turning inside their brains. How can we be made up of trillions of cells and how can each of these cells have a brain (city hall), have a power plant, have a food storage, have a highway system and more? What?! It is always wonderful to watch the thinking process in action.
