3rd graders dig science

What better way to learn about ecosystems than to create one? Nancy Lyons’ 3rd-grade class recently dug into an ecosystems unit in science, and they capped their studies with hands-on terrarium building.

Throughout the next month, the students will observe their terrariums and record changes, growing their knowledge along with their plants.
