7YO: Out in the World
The 7 Year Old class has been enjoying the warm weather and taking our studies out into the world. As part of our gardening unit, we have been visiting a local farm where we helped to plant seeds, transplant seedlings, harvest some crops and taste some delicious produce. In Science, our unit on Animals and Habitats has been combined with our Service Learning unit and challenging us to learn everything we can about sea turtles in Albania and how we can help them. This week, we went to Patok, learned even more about local turtles from resident experts, watched them release three rehabilitated sea turtles who were brought in by local fishermen, and then participate in a plastic clean up to try and make sure that animals have a safe and healthy place to live. We even removed a "ghost net" from the environment!
