Landing School fourth-graders in Margaret Clark's science classes shared their animal research at a classroom museum on Dec. 21.

In preparation for the event, students researched an animal of their choosing, focusing on habitats, life cycles, adaptations for survival and other interesting facts. They then created posters and dioramas to accompany their findings.

At the event, students visited each other’s exhibits to listen to well-rehearsed presentations. Topics included sharks, frogs, Bengal tigers, pangolins and Tasmanian devils. Students used iPads during class time, as well as materials from the school library and public library, to complete this project in school and at home.
