Young Scientists at JQA Share Findings and Excitement

As part of an in-depth Teacher’s College science unit, students in Laura Oddo and Vanessa Pizzo’s co-teaching class at JQA worked as active scientists, looking closely at items from nature such as shells, rocks, fossils and plants. The students observed, labeled and listed the objects, just as a real scientist would.

“I loved this unit because it incorporated science, reading and writing,” said Oddo. “The kids were excited to use the magnifying glasses to look closely and describe the features they see.”

Said Pizzo, “I enjoyed watching the students use new vocabulary to share their excitement and findings as well as helping one another and comparing their discoveries.”'
