Rose Acres fourth graders celebrate Shark Week


Fourth graders at Rose Acres Elementary are holding their own version of Shark Week and every classroom is decorated with an underwater theme. 

"We've been studying nonfiction text features and learning how to use expository nonfiction," fourth grade teacher Mary Spitzmiller said. "We integrated nonfiction into our science unit that is on animal structures and behaviors."

Grace Burgos, Kirstie Hummert and Spitzmiller decided to have every student research a type of shark species. 

"They then each picked a shark to battle and so they'll have a 'Who would win?' battle based on their research."
