Delicious Lesson

As part of practicing the phases of the moon, students made a model to represent the moon at different times of the cycle. Of course if we are going to use Oreos to practice, then we have to eat them when we are done!

Super Dan

Dan Wardell from Iowa Public Television spent some time with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders to share some of his story time adventures.  With the help of Mrs. Sobaski and several students, Dan turned the gym into a land of fairy tales!

A Day in the Rainforest

A representative from Wildlife Encounters came to Pence to share his experiences with the students.  Wildlife Encounters is an organization that rehabilitates animals that people have taken as pets and then dumped.  Most of the animals they deal with are from tropical areas of the world and are brought to the Midwest.  People then realize they can't take care of them and dump the animals.  Below are few of the animals that he brought to share.
