It's a Bug's Life!

Pond Springs students explored the tiny world of insects using the microscope adapters on our Samsung document cameras.  They were able to zoom in on dragonfly wings and honeybee stingers, as well as other small things on Family Science Night.


Our Third Graders learned about ways in which people in different cultures celebrate with their loved ones using the Pond Springs Research Resources page.  Along the way, they also learned about online research, taking notes, acceptable internet use and copyright agreements!

Baby It's Cold Outside!

Pond Springs Third Graders use the Vernier Go! Temperature Probes and Logger Pro software to graph the temperature of water before and after ice cubes are added.
