Lower School Earth Day 2017Posted by Carlene Gordon
On April 21, 2017 our Lower School students spent the day discovering causes and effects of global warming. In the morning three presenters came in to share activities related to this overarching topic. The Connecticut Science Center educators taught us all about vermicomposting, including worm anatomy and limits on composting due to the methane gas byproduct. Kellogg Environmental Center presented activities on food webs and the significant effects global warming is having on some species. Finally the Audubon shared many live animals and demonstrated how global warming can change habitats and the adaptations of wildlife. In the afternoon, we broke into groups and continued to learn about the impacts of global warming with lessons taught by Upper School students. The day concluded with the entire Unquowa coming back together for an Earth Day Assembly. It was a busy and fun day of learning more about a very important topic.
