The 5th grade students at Wolfe Street Academy recently had the opportunity to visit Towson University. Through a partnership with the Towson University College of Education (Towsoncoeducation), Towson students have come to Wolfe to get firsthand experience in the classroom. In return our 5th grade Wolfe students were invited to learn more about college with a visit to Towson University. While at Towson University, our students attended a panel discussion held by Towson students about what it is like to attend college. They toured the campus, had a special tour of the library and shared a lunch with their Towson Buddy. Students left with a better understanding of campus life and how their hard work now is the first step toward a bright future. As the students were leaving the comment heard many times was "I want to go to college here." Thank You Towson! ... See MoreSee Less

Core Knowledge is a language arts curriculum that covers what every child should know about literature, history, mathematics, science, and the visual arts. Mrs. Pieters' class at City Springs Elementary / Middle School recently completed a Core Knowledge domain titled “Classifying Animals.” Students were introduced to taxonomy, which is the science of grouping living things into different categories based on shared characteristics. For example, dogs and cats are very different, but they are both considered mammals because they have shared characteristics like hair and similar bone structures.

The students most enjoyed learning about the different groups of vertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with spinal cords (as opposed to invertebrates, which do not have spinal cords). Scientists recognize five groups of vertebrates: mammals, amphibians, birds, fish, and reptiles. The students learned that scientists classify animals to learn more about them and show relationships between them. They explored the difference between warm-blooded (animals that can make their own body heat) and cold-blooded (animals that cannot make their own body heat) vertebrates. They can now identify which of the 5 groups are warm-blooded (mammals and birds) and which are cold-blooded (amphibians, reptiles, and fish).

After learning about the system of taxonomy, students flexed their own classification skills. They listed the main characteristics of the animals in each group and described how these characteristics help the animals to survive. They also classified different kinds of breakfast cereal based on its characteristics. All of that classifying made them hungry, and they enjoyed a nice cereal snack at the end!
