Animal Detectives

1st graders at Hapgood Elementary acted as Animal Detectives searching for insects, birds and other animals in the school garden.  They turned over logs to find worms, observed rolly pollys on a rotting pumpkin, and noted a hummingbird pollinating a shrub. Students sketched these critters and silently observed as scientists. Finding and observing snails was a highlight for the students.  Near the end of the class, the teacher decided to have the students observe the movement of the snails with a “race” and the entire class gathered around to watch!
