Take a Walk through a Third Grader's Eyes

In the fall Grade 3 walkers will observe tiny creatures as the introduction to their classroom unit on food chains. In addition children will learn how to distinquish between insects, spiders, and other mini-creatures and about insect life cycles. In the spring Grade 3 will learn to identify common plants used by colonial families.

Please check the walk calendar and the grade coordinator or classroom representative for details of when each walk takes place. Walk leaders should remember to recite Harrington's Big Backyard Mantra before each walk.
