In a two-for-two outcome, Carrollton won another First Place in a Fairchild Challenge. The school received notice that Carrollton Junior High students won First Place in the Fairchild Challenge #6 Shade Our Schools: Flora and Fauna competition. They joined the High School students who also won in a video challenge. The entire Junior High was involved in this study which included detailed field observations of bird life and lizard (anole) diversity on campus over a two-month period. Identification and documentation of observed species were enhanced through the use of the iNaturalist app, which provided direct contact with field biologists.
Students in 7th grade Science and Creative Expressions classes and 8th grade English classes created the award-winning Field Journal which included written entries and sketches of weekly observations, watercolor drawings of local species and written memories of our beloved Duchesne Oak.
Congratulations to all Junior High Students and participating teachers Alejandra Bunster, Shaune Scott and Kate Thome.
