Leslie Science & Nature Center - Animal Investigations are on display!

Leslie Science Center has provided to promote the Project Based collaborative activity for Mrs. Terria Jones' class. We partnered with this community organization to complete animal research reports. The science center provided her students with information about Michigan animals as well as making sure several of these animals were on display when her class visited the facility on a field trip. The science center has the students animal field guides on display and wanted to announce this to the Holmes families.

Animal investigation field guides that her class made this spring!
