Lewis and Clark students recently had the pleasure of witnessing David Hagerman's Extreme Science assembly. Hagerman presented to students while on roller blades to show the laws of motion, potential and kinetic energy, electricity, properties of water and polymer crystals that make it "disappear," how to recycle styrofoam, and much, much more! Students were very engaged and entertained as they learned about all the science around us every day! A big thanks goes to our local Parent Teacher Organization for supporting this assembly! It was very fun and educational!
Ice Fishing 2013

On Thursday, January 24th Lewis and Clark 5th grade classes participated in ice fishing, part of the "Hooked on Fishing" programs put on by the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks. This year the event took place at Big Casino Creek Reservoir! The Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks supplied all the poles, bait (maggots), drilled the holes and helped supervise the activity. The students caught Perch that they will use in another FWP activity in March where they will examine, dissect, and identify fish anatomy. It was great to see all the student, parents, and volunteers enjoying the day as they learned about the process of ice fishing. During the day they also participated in fish identification with FWP as they identified fish anatomy. Students learned that the exterior of they fish tells a lot about where the fish lives. They examined the size of their eyes, body shape, placement of fin, tail, and mouth, and coloring. Other FWP programs this year consist of fish jeopardy, fish art, fly tying, lure making, fish dissection, and a Lewistown Fish Hatchery presentation. Lewis & Clark appreciates the partnership with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks!
