Under the direction of teacher Valarie Scicchitano, fifth-grade students at Connolly School created a rainforest museum in the school library. Students combined their studies of art, science, English Language Arts and math to create a beautiful exhibit, equipped with colorful images, important facts about the rainforest, lots of trees and even a few live animals! Third and fourth-graders took a tour of the museum. The exercise reflects the type on interdisciplinary, hands-on projects recommended with the new Common Core Standards.
