What’s New in Elementary: Soccer and Caterpillars

For the past couple of weeks, the Elementary class has been participating in soccer drills on Friday afternoons. The students have been working on ball control, passing, shooting a goal, and stopping a goal as the goalie. Each week they are divided up into two groups during the P.E. session, a younger group and an older group. They enjoy playing with each other and are excited about playing their first game, which will be soon!

Also new in the class are caterpillars that will grow into Painted Ladies butterflies! This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn about metamorphosis right in front of their eyes. Some students are working on the migration of the insect, as well as different markings, dietary preferences, and pollination. Others are drawing butterflies and labeling their parts.  In the gallery below you can find a picture of our caterpillars from this week.

The Elementary class is buzzing with fun and exciting work happening!
