To complete our diversity of living things unit students were assigned a project that gave them the opportunity to put their budding creative talents to use! The task: The zoo in your city is excited to announce they will be adding new exhibits! In the next few weeks, the zoo will receive many new plants and animals to create these new exhibits. The zoo has asked you to help design a new habitat exhibit for the organisms. Students designed a poster that displayed the characteristics of the plants and animals, as well as the habitat. They had to present their habitat to a committee of zoo employees (Ms. Berry and classmates).
Please have your Child wear a BRCVPA Spirit Shirt or their maroon EBRPSS uniform shirt for class pictures (no Fall Fest Shirts, Event Shirts, or Production Shirts, etc).
3rd, 4th, & 5th Graders.............If you participate in a club please bring your club shirt for club pictures!
