A Cave of Learning

Academy Elementary School second-graders showcased their newfound knowledge of bats during a Bat Cave Museum.

Prior to the event, the students researched an individual species of bat and created a diorama of the nocturnal mammal’s habitat. They also created bat-themed math story problems and wrote bat poems and bat paragraphs. The completed pieces were put on display during the event for parents and family members to view.

The project was truly multidisciplinary, as it made connections to the grade level’s science, math, literacy and English language arts curricula.
