EDISON – To enhance their unite about animals and to reinforce the Lower School’s theme this year of “Golden Ways to Go Green,” fourth graders in Ellen Colandrea’s class at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison crated invertebrates using recycled materials like empty food containers, Styrofoam balls, pipe cleaners, etc.
They mounted their models on a piece of wood or cardboard and labeled the parts of the invertebrate, such as the thorax, legs, wings, abdomen and antennae. They also indicated the invertebrate’s classification, such as crustacean, arachnid or insect. Each student reported on 20-25 interesting facts about their special creatures.
On April 20, they shared their creations with Crissy Pianet’s second grade class.
