Welcome to Antarctica!


Our first and second graders have been studying Antarctica, which, given the current frigid weather in Chicago, seems very fitting.



In fact, the penguins got so cold here that they donned hats and scarves!




The first and second graders have become experts on penguins and have been hosting other classes in their Antarctica-styled classroom to share their knowledge.

The class's flag is back! It flew over McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica, taken by a University of Chicago scientist who'd visited the class before leaving for the South Pole in December.




On a particularly cold day this week, the children decided to open the classroom windows and visitors had to wear coats. After all, they were visiting Antarctica!
