Second Grade Students Share Landform Knowledge
Second grade students recently completed a unit of study on landforms and invited parents and friends to an exhibition on North American landforms. Imagining themselves as scientists, each student researched a different region in North America and reported on the unique animals and their habitats, landforms, and how humans impact that area. Hilltop’s Lower School knowledge sharing events give students a chance to grow their knowledge and self-confidence, and hone their public speaking skills.
