COMPLETING PHASE ONE OF THE LIVING THINGS UNIT -- Students in Allison Tinson and Cassie Saikin's fifth-grade classes recently completed phase one of their Living Things unit in science class. "We started with soil, then we added grass, alfalfa and mustard seeds. We water every two days and when the grass has grown up, we'll add crickets and roly-poly bugs," said Max McClure. Each day the students record the growth of the plants and depth of soil on a lab chart. Toward the end of the unit, the students will add mini-aquariums with guppies to their eco-systems to complete the Producers-Consumers-Decomposers life cycle. Shown with the terrariums they created are, from left, Christian Aldrich, Max McClure, Luke Dudas and Samantha Giguere.
