"Wind, Water, and Temperature" Program for 4th Grade at J/J
Thursday, March 5

Our 4th grade students will be experiencing the "Wind, Water, and Temperature" program on March 5th. This is another enrichment program funded by MESA, presented by the Museum of Science. This presentation demonstrates how atmospheric phenomena interact with each other to create the weather we experience every day. Students watch a hot air balloon launch toward the ceiling, pressurize a tank to create enough wind to power a cannon, and see a cloud form before their eyes.

World Of Owls Recap

102.jpg

The fourth graders at the Jordan Jackson school learned about the World Of Owls from Julie Ann Colier of  Wingmasters (http://www.wingmasters.net/woowls.htm).

Julie brought six owls and  one falcon that she and  her partner have rescued and rehabilitated.  All the classes heard about adaptations, extinction and sharing the  environment with wild animals.

Thank you to Pam Rieth for organizing this wonderful program!
