5th Grade Taxonomy

Remember Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species?
Marshall fifth graders are learning about taxonomy, or the science of classification, with Mr. Friese. Friese gives the students the Kingdom, Phylum, and the Class, and the students need to design their own creature, assigning them an Order, Family, Genus, and Species. The students love the opportunity to get creative - in fact one student said, “This is the best science lab ever!"

Hartley Trail Building

Marshall STEM teacher Paul Schonfeld led students out for an afternoon of trail-building yesterday. He says that the group "had a good day of working on trails at Hartley Park.  Students got on-site training from COGGs members and we made good progress on a couple of re-route sections of the trail." Nice work, Toppers!
