Guest Speaker - All About Bees!
Ms. Deb (student's aunt) shared her extensive knowledge of bees and bee-keeping with our class. Students also got to sample homemade dark and light honey, honeycomb, and honey lemonade. Discussions focussed on not only the facts but also connecting to our unit about humans impact on the environment as well as sustaining life on Earth. Delicious and Informative -- all at the same time :). Thank you Ms. Deb! Be sure to check out more photos under the PHOTO ALBUM page.

The Great Eclipse 2017 at Lex!! As the cloudy skies came and went, it presented an opportunity for our student scientists to practice documenting observations and noticing change with our 2nd grade friends (yeah Ms. Kristin). Thank you to the district for providing glasses so we could all view this amazing celestial event!

On Thursday, Sept 7th, FOF had the exciting opportunity to hear from our own Mrs. Lougee's daughter, Chandler Lougee about her experience as the Safety Officer on the University of Washington's Society for Advanced Rocket Propulsion (SARP) team. Chandler shared reflections from her experience on the team was well as the videos below depicting the test and actual launches of her team's rocket. The students had engaging questions and literally jumped from their seats when the rocket ignited :). Our sincere thanks to the Lougee family!!
