Budding Young Scientists

Woodhull Elementary School students learned about the world around them during a recent environmental education program focused on living things.
After catching various critters in the Great South Bay, the pre-K and kindergarten students looked at fiddler crabs, snails and different bones.

The students also worked with the second-graders to observe changes in states of matter and took apart mechanical objects to see how things work. The items they "dissected" included a hair dryer, fan and telephone. The students later had the opportunity to see if they could invent something new from the dismantled items.
