Kincaid Garden Update

 Great News!  We have received one of the Keep Cobb Beautiful “Dig’n the Dirt” grants.  These funds will help us repair the garden beds and fill them with soil.  Our Garden Committee will be meeting on Thursday, December 13th, at 9:00 to discuss our spring plans for the garden.  If you are interested in helping please contact Bridget Nastasi, Kincaid Science Instructor.

 Kindergarten

The kindergarten class visited the science lab last month to learn about living and nonliving things.  They sorted items into two groups: living and nonliving, and learned the characteristics of living things.  Thank you to our parent volunteers who helped out in the lab!

First Grade

The first graders came to the science lab this month to learn about magnets.  They did experiments to see what is attracted to a magnet and learned that a magnet’s force can be felt through different objects like our hands.  They also used magnets to attract and repel toy cars.
