The kindergarten students at Park Elementary hosted a special performance to show friends and family all they had learned in their life science unit. The performance gave students a creative outlet to showcase their mastery of Colorado Academic Standards. Their charming performance proved that the students knew how to share scientific ideas and describe living things by their physical characteristics. Great job!
