Freddie is demonstrating how to say "see" in Native American Sign Language.
The children have learned over 50 words in sign language and can put them together to make phrases and sentences. They learned that the hundreds of tribes often spoke different languages. A sign language was developed so that when they met up with one another, they could communicate basic information.
This year the Animal Science Club, sponsored by Mrs Newman, learned about many different species of animals. They made science books about the special animals they studied. In one of the pictures, the children are examining a real ostrich egg. They discovered that those eggs are very sturdy! One of the goals was for the children to love and appreciate all animals.
