Week at Stanley Clark
posted by: abeebe
I love going to Stanley Clark School. The first and second graders are always so excited about the fish, and have prepared lots of “wonderments”. These are questions that they have written down about the fish, and we get to talk about them together. Some of these questions are correctly answered by other students in the class. Some I may be able to answer, and some we will be able to answer as the week progresses and we get to observe the embryos growing. We talk about how scientists do the same things-they come up with questions that they are interested in, and then go about finding out the answers-sometimes by reading about “it” in a book or on line. They might ask another friend or scientist to see if they know the answer. They may actually “do” an experiment to find out the answer. The joy of learning is palpable in the room, and we have a great time exploring zebrafish together! Here are some hard working first and second graders (along with their teachers) studying the fish.
