Eco Bottles

In the 6th grade we have been working on eco bottles.  In the water part there are two guppies.  In the dirt part there are 2 red wriggler worms.  In the leafy part there is a cricket and grass seeds.  How do the animals breath? Well, they can breath because of the plants. 

This is a fun way to spend your summer. The guppies eat the snails waste and the snail eats the plants and algae.  The worms eat the same as usual; dirt and decomposing matter.  The cricket eats plants and even meat, on every continent except Antarctica.   That is what is in the eco bottles.

The pumpkin raffle happened and Tyler won ours.🎃 It is the fifth one over from the white one.  We made a football player with a Grafton helmet.
This is our pumpkin.

6th Grade Apple Picking

On October 4th the Athens-Grafton Elementary School 6th grade went apple picking at Hidden Orchard Farm. We picked 23 bags of apples! We picked these apples for an apple pie sale that will fund our trip to the Keewaydin Environmental Education Center. This Friday we are going to make apple pies for our sale that is on Sunday, October 9th, at the post office from 11:00-3:00. Please stop by to support us. Our sales will all be by donation.  We are also raffling off a 300 year old quilt donated by Kathy Metelica. We would like to say thank you to Mr. Lisai and the Grape family for letting us come to the orchard and pick all those apples.
