Melissa Frisch’s fourth grade students at Bataan Memorial Intermediate School recently received a special package from Texas. They are participating in the Environment Box Exchange, where a teacher in another part of the United States works with students to collect samples of nature that are reflective of the area.
Students prepare reports, create artwork, write poetry and prepare nature samples in a format to be shared. Frisch’s classroom is exchanging environmental material with Mildred Independent School District in Corsicana, Tex.
Students enjoyed opening the environmental box with various leaves, flowers and especially some huge acorns. They compared climate and then made a list of items unique to Ohio they can collect and send to Texas. To see the more news visit www.pccsd.net.
