Dr. Kim Garfinkel (a Hamlin parent and OB/GYN) visited Grade 4 scientists at the end of their Human Life Cycle unit. Dr. Garfinkel answered questions from the Curiosity Box, shared pictures to deepen understanding, and peaked the students’ interest with anecdotes from her personal and professional experiences. Ms. Ray, Ms. Gonzalez, and the Grade 4 learners are so thankful to have hosted Dr. Garfinkel in their Science classes.
As a culmination of our Human Life Cycle Unit in Grade 3, students hosted two guest scientists and also Hamlin parents. Dr. Kim Newell and Dr. Lesley Meister visited the LS Science Lab to answer questions from our Curiosity Box. Dr. Newell, a pediatrician, covered the topic of puberty. Dr. Meister, an OB/GYN, discussed fetal growth/development, and childbirth. Ms. Ray, Ms. Gonzalez, and all of the Grade 3 learners are filled with gratitude to have had the opportunity to learn from these experts.
