Mrs. Hoffman's ClassroomWe have been studying rocks and fossils and last week we were lucky to have a visit from Barb Beasley, a paleontologist from the Forest Service, visit us and bring samples of fossils. She talked to us about fossils and showed us samples of fossils found at Toadstool Park and other places. She taught us about invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants that can be found in fossil form. She showed us a model of a giant pig's skull that lived in this area millions of years ago.

Mrs. Anderson's class started a PenPal project this year where they wrote letters to a group of students somewhere in the US. They told their penpals about themselves, facts about Nebraska (without mentioning we were Nebraska), and then asking questions they wanted to know the answers to about their penpals.
Mrs. Piercy's ClassroomFourth grade students took the Nebraska State Writing Test last week. Much time was taken preparing for this test, and the students worked hard as they applied what they had learned on the actual test. On Thursday, we had pop and popcorn to celebrate their hard work.
