Second Graders Become ‘Wormologists’ thumbnail120597

Second graders at Deasy and Gribbin took part in a worm investigation this week with their classroom teachers. Greentree Foundation instructor and Adelphi University professor Mary Jean McCarthy spent a day at each primary school to lead students and their teachers in exploring the spineless superhero – the earthworm! Students learned about the importance of worms in our native gardens and in food production. They also conducted investigations aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
