First-Graders Focus On Saving Endangered Animals

Written by Enterprise-Pilot Staff, oysterbay@antonnews.com Friday, 18 July 2014 00:00

The year-long study of the Animal Kingdom in the first grade at East Woods School allowed the students to learn and accomplish more than most would think a class of 6- and 7-year-olds could do. Learn the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates? They did. (Learn how to spell vertebrates and invertebrates? They did.) Dissect various underwater creatures in the East Woods Lower School Science lab? They did. Select an endangered animal, research that animal, write a report in PowerPoint and present their findings in front of the entire school? They did, and they did it with confidence.

On a Friday morning this spring, the hard – and fun – work of this class was in evidence as the first grade took to the stage. Singing songs they learned in music class and wearing headpieces they created in the likeness of their endangered animal, the first grade impressed the audience of students, faculty and parents with their knowledge and poise. The students stood comfortably and confidently on stage, reading their reports and class-created acrostic poems aloud, proud of what they had learned and proud to be sharing it.
