Taylor Hosts Metairie Academy 4th Graders for Science Extravaganza

Yesterday, ninety fourth graders visited Taylor to see the seventh graders demonstrate experiments. I helped with the event by reading Bones and Actual Size both by author Steve Jenkins. The books are outstanding science non-fiction. Then several ninth graders and a senior presented a quiz with a flipchart on the Promethean Board using facts from the two books. The elementary students used the Promethean Activotes to give us their answers. It was a lot of fun for me to get back in my reading aloud mode. Love it!!! My helpers were awesome. The whole event was planned by science teacher Katie Higgins. Thanks Katie for letting me be a part of your event.

Did you know that the python has 200 sets of ribs!

My helpers ask a question about the number of bones in a human's hands.
The answer is 27.


  1. FYI - I read your blog when you email. Our two worlds are revolving around each other - very far apart but are at least in the same universe.

  2. Glad to hear that you are reading what I write. Sometimes I think that I am just writing for myself. Looking forward to lunch tomorrow.
