Life in the WDMCS 01/27/15

Life in the WDMCS is a weekly feature that highlights what is happening at each of our buildings. If a school is not listed, there was no submission from that building this week.

Crestview Elementary

A Polk County conservationist visited kindergarten to teach the students about animal tracks. The children are learning new skills through games that are part of the Everyday Math curriculum.

Jordan Creek Elementary

The second-grade students at Jordan Creek have enjoyed studying about the ocean this month.  The students learned the zones of the ocean, tides, coral reefs, food chains, and the effects of pollution. The students also researched one ocean animal and created a report and ocean visual that shares where the ocean animal lives, what it eats, how it defends itself, and other interesting facts. The students will have a walk-through museum with Jordan Creek students and staff.
