Second Grade Target Bats Project

Second Grade Target students are starting a project on various species of bats.  After an introduction to the information gathering process, students were provided with QR code stickers to lead them to selected websites.  Students may also click on the images below for the Blendspace with the web sites Mrs. Peterson, Mrs. Kuhn, and Ms. Adams prepared.
