    Blue Heron and Wetland Photos 
     
    We study wetlands as part of our fourth grade science curriculum. The birds that find wetlands appealing are Blue Herons and Egrets. We even have a Blue Heron that visits the wetland around Bear Creek!

     The Scientific Method
     

    scientific method (noun) -

    a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.

    We use The Scientific Method when we learn about new ideas in Science class. Below is a slideshow defining the terms we use as fourth grade scientists.
