The fourth graders pulled bunches of leaves out of the stream through campus and looked for the creatures -- from leaches to fish to worms -- that inhabit the stream.  Here is a Photo Gallery of them in the Upper School Bio Lab using microscopes to identify the different species.

Tuesday, Nov. 26 featured science displays by the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders spread around the Lower School.  From cool cats and scary spiders to jumping bullfrogs and creepy brains, they had fun explaining their experiments and research to other students and family members.  See photo galleries of the 3rd Grade Displays, the 4th Grade Displays, and the 5th Grade Displays.
