MRS. RINGANESE'S SCIENCE CLASSES GAIN AN APPRECIATION FOR NATURE AND ECOLOGY

Posted October 6 at 6:44am

Just like the first 19th century scientist adventurers Darwin and Audubon, Minisink Valley seventh grade students explored the nearby fields and forests. They collected natural items, identified them with labels and created a collection to learn more about the world around them. This was not only an educational endeavor, but also an opportunity to explore and appreciate the beautiful environment surrounding us.  The following 7th Grade Science students with their projects are pictured from left to right:  Jillian McSpirit, Hunter Reymaniak, Robert Decker, and Gregory Fratto.
