Living Planet Aquarium Visit

Attributions: 

This week the sixth grade classes at Westside were visited by the Living Planet Aquarium. They learned about ecosystems as they played a game simulating the life of a turtle and discussed the effect of animals on their habitats. The kids also saw and had the chance to pet a three-banded armadillo, an African pygmy hedgehog, a Bredli carpet python, and a giant cave cockroach. 

Learning About the Middle Ages

Attributions: 

To kick off learning about the Middle Ages, several sixth grade classes were visited recently by a Viking knight, Sir Bailey. The sixth graders learned all about what it meant to be a knight during the Viking times, what they wore, weapons that they used, and what their lives were like. It was so interesting to have a visitor from the past to bring history alive!

In late December Westside received a special treat with a visit from Santa! He came to say hello to each class, passed out candy canes, and reminded the children to do their best. Westside is always grateful for such wonderful visitors!
