How are Bees Pollinating Plants?

The 2nd graders in Mrs. Furman’s class learned about how bees are important in helping plants become pollinated. The students were put into a group and given many different items to create their own hand pollinator. Each group had to use sand (pollen) to test their model. They were all a SUCCESS!

Pumpkin Book Reports

At Roberts Elementary, Mrs. Asztalos’ and Mrs. Furman’s second-grade classes created pumpkin book reports. Each student was asked to select their favorite book. Next, the students had to discuss their characters in a story. They each picked one character and created the character on a small pumpkin. Last, the students filled out the book report form that asked them to describe their character and also give their opinion of their book character. It was AMAZING how proud the students were when they presented their pumpkin reports to their classmates. The pumpkins are displayed in the library.
