Van Buren Elementary School Students Travel to the “Rain Forest”
Kindergarten in Van Buren Elementary School Kristine Kroening’s class is a tropical rainforest of learning fun! Students have been studying and researching about habitats and which animals live and can survive in each home. Through smart board activities, books, computers and art projects, students have been adding animals to their rainforest habitat. What a great way to engage students in learning! Every student can share details down to the size and type of poisonous frogs that live within the vines. Students are active, motivated learners. Way to go Mrs. Kroening and Mrs. Hammon!
