Farmview has a small science room within the classroom. The children really enjoy this area. The school’s science room has an animal from each classification: birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and reptiles. A parakeet bird, a box turtle, an anole lizard, a gerbil, fish and water frogs all are residence this room. When studying parts of the bird, the children can actually see the live bird with all its parts. The animals are also used to help Kindergartners with responsibility. It is a “Kindergarten job” to feed the animals.
Farmview also takes time to study plants as well. Parts of a tree, leaves, roots, flowers and pumpkins are all part of the science curriculum.
Children are encouraged to bring things in from nature to display on the science shelf.
