News from Sandy & Olga’s Class

   The goldfish have arrived! Five beautiful goldfish are now making themselves at home in our classroom and providing us with a topic of study.  First year students have been learning about the purpose of each type of fin on a fish’s body.  They have drawn and labeled the parts of the fish. Second years have been learning about the inside of the fish. They are learning about the functions of respiration, circulation, movement, support, and reproduction.  Third years students read reports about particular Africa fish. They had to read very carefully and look for clues about biomes in order to match each fish report to its picture.
