On Jan. 24, third grade students at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School functioned as teachers, educating second graders about the various types of frogs they had studied.

Second graders in Alison Purdy’s and Amy Minerva’s classes grouped up with third graders in Lori Mandracchia’s and Patty Gorman’s classes, rotating periodically so each second grader could learn about several different frog species. This collaboration allowed the third graders to proudly showcase their hard work and provided a great opportunity for mentorship among the two grade levels.
