Valentine’s Day took on a whole new meaning for students at Glebe Street Elementary. The school welcomed special guests from The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake – Adirondack Experience Outreach program. The third grade students learned how Adirondack mammals are suited to live and thrive in the Adirondack State Park. As part of this unique outreach program, students took an in-depth look at the specialized body and skull structures of specimens. The participating class put their critical thinking skills to the test with two activities – “Carnivore, Herbivore or Omnivore?” and an adaptation matching game.
The students had a great time learning and observing how the animals are able to weather the seasons and got an inside look at how our friends in the forest live and create habitats in today’s woodlands. Glebe Street Elementary is excited to welcome them back in the spring to work with our second grade students. Stay tuned!!
