Learning and Teaching About Digestion

Hackley Upper School biology students wrote postcards to Hackley first graders highlighting the differences between human digestion and the digestive systems of other animals.

The first graders worked in pairs to read the postcards and write back to the upper schoolers. The lower schoolers were very eager to learn from the upper schoolers, and the upper schoolers had to fully synthesize the material in order to make it accessible to the younger students.  Thanks to all for the collaborative teaching and learning experience!
