Spring is always a great time for studying nature in Frisco ISD. Classrooms from elementary to high school take advantage of great weather to study environmental science, botany and animal science.
At Comstock Elementary, kindergarten students culminated their cross-curricular study of insects with a bug museum and parade.
Many students learned about life cycles by watching butterflies emerge from cocoons or baby chicks hatch. Norris Elementary students named their chicks, who hatched May 22, Lemon and Bunny. The first-grade students of Rhonda Vandercook took turns holding the new additions to their classroom.
Students used the spring as a great time to spend even more time in school gardens, including those at Nelson Middle School and Tadlock Elementary School. Elementary students also learn grow plants in the classroom.
As school ends and summer begins, FISD teachers urge parents to take time to enjoy nature on vacations and talk to their students about what they have learned.
