Chippewa Elementary School students were recently introduced to areas of biology and entomology with help from two assistant professors from the Department of Biology at Farmingdale State College.

Cell biologist Dr. Azad Gucwa visited Donna Gianfortone’s first-grade class and Laura Seguna’s fourth-grade class to guide students through a hands-on learning activity utilizing foldscopes and paper microscopes.

As part of an additional activity, Dr. Carly Tribull taught students about entomology and the importance of insects as she spoke about her unique collection of insects.

A collaborative effort provided impressive results as kindergarten students in Jennifer Collins’ class joined their fifth-grade book buddies in Amanda Hallstein’s class at Chippewa Elementary School for a project that honored prominent African-American men and women in history.

As part of the project celebrating Black History Month, student groups researched information on their selected individual and created timelines using chronological order to outline their lives. While organizing the presentations, fifth-grade students focused on text structure to clearly and concisely deliver the information.  

Concluding the project, students presented their work to a room of their peers on the influential individual they selected. Among the prominent figures chosen were Fredrick Douglas, Barack Obama, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson and Harriet Tubman.

Elements of traditional Chinese culture covered the halls of Chippewa Elementary School in celebration of Chinese New Year on Feb. 5 as students participated in a collection of activities highlighting the country.

Before the celebration, third-grade students throughout the building crafted Chinese lanterns, masks and painted messages in Mandarin to be displayed throughout the building. In addition, students became experts on Chinese culture, learning intriguing facts about the country and its citizens’ way of life. 

Concluding the celebration, students enjoyed a Chinese food lunch where they spoke about the Americanized items served and those served as a part of a traditional Chinese meal.
