Montshire Museum Partnership
We have developed a partnership with the Montshire Museum. In March of 2014, Mrs. Sylvain began working with the Montshire Museum to develop a microscope curriculum to use in the sixth grade classroom. Since then, we have purchased a class set of microscopes, slides, and the accompanying materials to create our own slides. Students will look at the cell structure of insects, animals, and plants. We will practice scientific drawing and exploration.
More recently, Mrs. Sylvain has continued to work with the Montshire Museum to enhance her scientific learning by participating in a mentoring program. We will apply the concepts and ideas from this mentorship to our classroom learning.
