Last week at Irasburg Village School, 5th graders had the chance to take a closer look at soil by using a multi-tiered sieve to separate the different particle sizes: sand, silt, and clay. Everyone enjoyed getting their hands dirty and feeling the difference in texture. We completed this lesson by practicing our math skills and calculating the percentage of sand, silt and clay in a soil sample!
Last week, 3rd graders at Glover Community School had the chance to try their hand at making sauerkraut while learning about the importance of nutrients in different colored foods, and how to preserve them. They learned a bit about fermentation, and will get to try their creation in a few weeks once the kraut is ready to eat!
During the winter, birds’ natural food sources are often buried under snow in Northern Vermont. So Troy School’s after school program made biodegradable bird feeders to place around the school and at their homes to support the local bird populations! These feeders will help birds survive during the long winter and help ensure bird populations continue to be a part of the healthy ecosystem in our area!
