As part of our previous science unit, 2nd graders studied Life Cycles. The objective of this unit was to ensure that students understood the life cycle of animals, starting from birth, growing into adults and any changes that take place in between. In order to help students truly understand this development, we hatched Butterflies in our classrooms.
On May 4 Union Elementary experienced their first Career Day. We had four guests visit our school to speak to the third through fifth grade students about different careers. Our speakers consisted of a nurse, air technician, veterinarian, and a sheriff.
