PS 84 Students don't just read to learn, they"Do" to learn!
Dear PS 84 Lion Family,
I love sharing with you just one more example of how our incredible school lives up to its mission of preparing our chldren to be effective global citizens of tomorrow.
Yesterday, students in Ms. Beazer's class talked about soil as an essential component to life on Earth, not just for the plants it provides us, but also for its role in the water cycle as a filter for our drinking water. Students conducted a soil test for nutrients and its PH from our garden soil and comparison samples. They also conducted a bacteria test from samples of water.
The Eco Column they constructed created a model of the living eco system of our planet.
Hands-on learning experiences like these in our Environmental Science Classes happen because of the generous donations of our PS84 Parents to the PTA.
Thank you to all!
