Lura Libby happenings
Thomaston — A visit to Lura Libby School in Thomaston Jan. 31 revealed there is a lot more going on than your typical reading, writing and arithmetic.
Students in Theresa Brewster's second-grade class learned a great deal during their unit on penguins. Did you know that penguins cannot fly but they swim very well? Or that sometimes they get eaten by leopard seals? And that they spend most of their time in the sea?
Jaime MacCaffray's third-grade class is in the middle of a six-week study of Native American cultures from different regions of the world. They are learning about what designs on totem poles represent and have learned what their Native American name is.
And Mary Wilgus' third-grade class was making array cards to learn multiplication.
