We are very lucky to have local author and Shelburne resident, Laurel Neme, come to speak to third and fourth grade Equinox students. Laurel holds a PhD from Princeton University, is a contributor to National Geographic, and has worked as a consultant for the US Treasury Department, World Bank, USAID, and World Wildlife Fund. She is also the author of 2 science books - "Animal Investigators" and most recently the children's book "Orangutan Houdini".
WCS students are very lucky to have Laurel come to talk to us about her travels and science adventures. This is talk is a celebration of our art and science integrated unit that the students recently completed. Third and fourth graders learned about the artist Georgia O'Keefe and how she liked to paint things BIG. Students researched the rainforest and chose images to inspired their paintings. In their science class, they researched facts and wrote about their project. We had a class critique and are celebrating our success with Laurel Neme's engaging presentation.
