Today was a very busy day. In the morning students completed their first round of fitness testing by running a cardiovascular fitness test called the beep test. They spent a large junk of the day working on their plant identification project. In the afternoon students finished the lesson on checking reliable Internet sources and had a chance to practice reviewing several websites to check for reliability. We also participated in a sun safety workshop where students learned how to protect themselves from skin cancer caused by the sun. Sometimes I am astonished at how much can fit into a school day! What a great day of learning.
