First grade students from the Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Meadow Hill School had an opportunity to publish books about animals last week.
Students picked an animal and researched the habitat, characteristics, interesting facts, and eating habits. The students then wrote, illustrated, and created books about the animals.
The students celebrated their work by inviting any available adults and students in the building to read their stories and share their knowledge of the animals they researched. The students participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony with a snack celebration afterwards.
