Sustainable Energy Science Projects

Our class had the fortunate opportunity to be a part of a sustainable energy event a few weeks ago. There were solar power displays, green building companies, and even an electric car show!

Classes from local elementary schools also displayed projects. Our first grade class presented our hydropower water wheels that we made. We showed how we could use water as a clean energy source, and talked about hydroelectric generators. I know, a lot for first grade, right?  We had a great time at the event and learned a lot about helping the environment.

Pumpkin farm field trip

We saw so many pumpkins at the pumpkin farm today! We learned all about different varieties and the life cycle of a pumpkin. 

Bear the farm dog was so nice!
