  • Squirrels at Independence Elementary
     Christy Ard’s 4th grade class at Independence Elementary experienced an awesome animal lesson recently. Mrs. Ard’s sons found baby squirrels who had fallen from their nest after one of the recent storms. They adopted the babies and have been caring for them. The squirrels visited Mrs. Ard’s class as a discussion starter on how weather can affect animals in the wild. The students were able to pet the squirrels, viewed videos, and later debated whether humans should change habitats of animals and its effects on them. Gracie Carr is shown above petting a baby squirrel in her class.
