Fifth grade students at Centre Avenue School in Mrs. Donald’s and Mrs. Ranieri’s classes participated in an outdoor science investigation. 

Students and their teammates used their inquiry skills to familiarize themselves with different scientific tools. They used measuring tapes to measure the circumference of tree trunks and swing poles, along with a hand lens and magnifying boxes to observe blades of grass, leaves and bugs. In addition, students created thinking maps to record their group’s data.
