Spring Has Sprung at the ZOO!

Mifflin 2nd graders couldn't have timed their zoo trip better! It was 60+ and the sun was shining! The animals made it known they were happy about it. We checked out some crazy creatures and observed how they behaved in their habitats. Some favorites were the frisky penguins, the vibrant flamingos, and the surprisingly vocal lemurs! Be sure to ask your 2nd grader about their favorite animal from the Philadelphia Zoo!

Adventurers Inspire the 4th Grade!

Antarctic Adventurers Share Their Story With The 4th Grade

Ms.Boyd's fourth graders are studying the continents. As luck would have it, Ms.Boyd stumbled upon an article about a team of students setting out on a climate change research adventure to Antarctica. She wrote to the journalist covering the team's journey, and Wah Lah! Two of the three students made plans to visit the Mifflin students before heading out on their excursion! Learn more about the trip here or watch the video.

On Thursday December 21st, the team brought their stories, expertise, and excitement to share with our awesome students! Ms.Boyd reports that the researchers were great with the kids, patient and informative. They are going to remain in contact with the class by email and maybe even a phone call from the ship! 

Thank you for the inspiring visit, Ms.Dodge and Mr.Weber! We can't wait to hear about your journey!
