Today was our first biobuddy day! The kindergartners met their seventh and eighth grade buddies to make self-portraits as well as handprints and footprints. Our biobuddies are so impressive in the way they lead, listen to and get to know our young learners. They set a wonderful example. One middle schooler even told us at the end of our morning today, "I had a great time. I am so excited!" What mature young men and women!
We will meet with our biobuddies once a month to see how we grow by weighing ourselves and measuring our height (in the metric system). We will also do body tracings, map systems of the human body and learn about our five senses. It promises to be a great year!
