Science Captivates Students

Students across Woodhull benefit from the Environmental Education program that enhances the school’s curriculum. In early February, the school’s first and second grade class visited Caleb Smith State Park, touring its Environmental Educator’s lab where they learned about different animals native to Long Island and then hiked the trails.

Students in third and fourth grade worked in partnerships inside the classroom, and then, thanks to the beautiful weather, visited actual waves just down the walk from Woodhull.

Awareness of Critical Issues

Woodhull School fifth graders have been researching different issues in the Western Hemisphere and have written essays about such matters as well as their proposed solutions to identified problems. As part of the project, students reported on the destruction of the Amazon jungle and the threatened species in the Galapagos Islands, as well as the endangered crocodiles in Paraguay. The next stage of this unit involves the students taking their new knowledge and using a technological platform to create a public service announcement that will teach others about the importance of addressing this issue.

Captured here are students sharing their created videos with each other for constructive feedback. These impressive videos include information about the issues they chose to highlight, images that bring the issues to life, narrated messages of action and music in a digestible time frame for any viewer.

Regular physical activity has tremendous benefits on individual’s physical and mental health. With physical education every day of the week at Woodhull Elementary School, students build on skills introduced across the week, adding complexity to each challenge.

Last week, the students built on their core strength by battling out epic duels of rock, paper, scissors while holding plank positions. The shoulder muscle work felt during crab walks and bear crawls were emphasized during crab and bear crawl volleyball. Incorporating these exercises into games increases the fun and maximizes the workout.
