Students in James Faulkner Elementary School’s Grade 4/5 have been participating in a year-long focus on energy. The year began with a science unit on energy and transitioned to a social studies/history unit on the rise and fall of water power in Stoddard. Later this year students will research current sources of energy/electricity in the world, evaluate the pros and cons, and make an argument for or against certain energy sources. Lastly, students will study the energy flow in the ecosystem through a study of food webs in partnership with the Harris Center.

Lauren Rettig, Davis Public Librarian helps a James Faulkner Elementary School student get a library card and check out a book for summer reading. The entire James Faulkner Elementary school had the opportunity to visit the library, get a card if they didn’t already have one, and check out books in time for summer. This was all part of a school wide project around writing book reviews and literacy.
