On Wednesday the children went to URI for their third grade field trip. They learned about different mammals, ways of protecting and keeping our water clean, how to plant seeds, composting with red wiggler worms, and different types of area insects. A special thanks to Mrs. Golden and Mrs. Goldstein who were our class chaperones.

Students have been looking closely at crayfish and their structures. They are making connections by observing crayfish behaviors. Crayfish have body structures that serve a function for their survival in their habitats. Watch out for their front pincers!

The children created many unique and creative gingerbread houses this week. They constructed many different homes from the variety of ingredients donated by parents. When they completed their homes they arranged them on a small community map according to their coordinates. Thank you to all the parents for the many donations and a special thanks to Mrs. Aiello, Mrs. O'Leary, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Goldstein, Mr. Valdavia, Mrs. Elefante and Mr. Joss for volunteering their time!

Students had a wonderful time estimating the weight, circumference, and seeds of pumpkins. After completing and recording their measurements, students counted pumpkin seeds and designed their pumpkin for carving. Thank you to our terrific volunteers, Ms. Dove, Mrs. Giles, Mrs. Major and Mrs. Vananse who helped carve and supervise this activity. We could not have done it without you! Pumpkins were donated to Charlestown School's Pumpkin Glow Night.
