We are very fortunate to have a world-class hands-on science "lab" nearly in our backyard. Many readers have been there: The Lake Erie Science & Nature Center in Bay Village. How it has grown since my grandmother used to take me there as a little girl in the 70s!
Courtesy of our generous PTA, Horace Mann 5th graders enjoyed the wide variety of experiences available at the Center. The awesome photos in the link show the boys and girls (so close be being middle schoolers now) learning about habitats on earth...and beyond:

I hope the memories of this trip are fond and last our 5th graders well beyond the 6 weeks they have left at The Mann. Many thanks to Mrs. Martzolf and Mrs. Robinson for arranging the trip and to our PTA for covering the cost. Horace Mann is ALL IN!
