Advanced Placement Biology students took their final exam to a whole new level. These assessments turned into creative, engaging community service efforts at the Lower School. Dr. Kish asked his AP Bio class to create a children’s book to teach one of the many concepts they learned this year. The juniors took the challenge and ran with it.
Clever titles like Freddy the Flower, The Adventures of Nina and The Water Cycle caught the eyes and ears of prekindergarten through fifth-grade students as they quickly formed small groups and listened to the Upper Schooler read their original children’s book.
Photosynthesis? You got it! The cell? You bet! Apparatus? No problem. Many topics were covered. For our Spanish immersion students, we even had one talented student write a book completely in Spanish.
All books were accented with detailed illustrations, charts, and graphs. Thanks to Upper School Director Mr. Deal for transporting the high schoolers to the downtown campus and thanks to our big Moravian Academy kids for being tremendous readers and role models. Your inquisitive, curious young audience will remember this day forever!
