The Science Center participated in Fox Hill’s second annual Earth Day Celebration. Fox Hill Librarian/Media Specialist Patrick Murphy planned this engaging, hands-on, school-wide learning experience. The theme of the day was “Small Actions With a Big Impact.” The purpose of the event was to teach students simple, yet powerful ways they can be stewards of the planet, help wildlife, connect with nature, combat climate change, grow a garden, help save bees, the benefits of recycling, and how to help make Fox Hill a green school.  Mrs. Pavlicek & Mrs. Hogan educated students on the live animals (owl, snake, tortoises, falcon).

The Earth Day celebration has a strong connection to our science curriculum.  First graders learn about plant and animal parts and functions, second graders go more in depth and learn about animals and their habitats, third graders study forces and motion, fourth graders explore the Earth’s changing surface, and fifth graders examine the Earth’s place in the Universe. The Earth Day event brings these curriculum concepts to life for our students and sparks even more curiosity to study science and the planet.
