Thank you to those families who came out to the grade 1 celebration of learning today. They have been learning all about cause and effect by designing Rube Goldberg machines. They are then transferring their learning to what cause and effect looks like in an ecosystem.

Learning the science of wetlands and ecosystems today through drama. Thanks to @Evergreen_Th for inspiring our thinking and your creative story telling. https://t.co/vIasS9Wo8I
