MVIS THIRD-GRADERS PRESENT RESEARCH ON BEAR BREEDS TO PEERS, PARENTS

Posted June 17 at 3:19pm

“Did you know that koala bears are actually not bears?” A group of third-graders in Gary Passamonte’s classroom couldn’t wait to set the record straight on Australia's most popular native animal.

 

“They’re a marsupial because marsupials have a pouch to carry their babies,” they explained, in unison.

 

Along with other groups in their classroom and Shari Cannone’s third-graders next door, the students were anxiously awaiting their visiting K-3 peers to present the findings of a month’s worth of scientific research into various bear breeds.
