The “Teddy Bear Clinic” is an injury prevention program for children sponsored by the Trauma Center at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The children learned that accidents can happen, but most injuries are preventable. They learned that seat belts should always be worn and children should sit in the back seat and that children should sit in a car seat until they are 4’9” in height. The importance of wearing a helmet was demonstrated with an egg drop experiment. The egg wearing a helmet survived while the egg without the helmet cracked open. The children not only learned about safety, but also helped to fix up their own furry friend who was injured in an accident. They filled out an accident report, developed a treatment plan and applied bandages to help their patient get better. The “Teddy Bear Clinic” was a hit and our kindergartners gained the knowledge they need to stay safe. CLICK headline for more photos.
The LightSail 25 Reading Challenge was a one-month reading contest that tracked the average minutes read for every 4th and 5th grade participant on the digital LightSail platform. The challenge was open to classrooms across the U.S., uniting them with the common goal of reading as much as possible during each day of the challenge. CLICK on headline for full story.
Sweetbriar Nature Center visited our 5th grade students and introduced them to owls, falcons and hawks. They learned about adaptations that help these awesome birds survive, how humans are part of the picture, and how we can help them. Students learned each bird’s stories about how they came to be at Sweetbriar. CLICK for photos.
