United Way and WVIA celebrate 100th Birthday at Kistler

Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade participated virtually in a United Way sponsored event through WVIA. The event was to celebrate the United Way of Wyoming Valley's 100th Birthday! Kistler students drew pictures and sorted animal habitats. United Way treated each student to a chocolate chip sprinkle cookie. Students will go home with a lunchbox, crayons, eraser, book, and ruler. Thank you United Way and WVIA for including us in this great program.

Dr. Bones Lesson

4-6 Science Lesson with "Dr. Bones"

Students in 4-6 enjoyed having their “guest” instructor, Dr. Bones, teach them how to dissect barn owl pellets.  Students learned how the owl pellets form and used their tools to dissect the owl pellets and identify the bones, teeth, hair, and scales from the different species of the owl’s prey like mice, voles, shrews, birds, and fish.  The students showed each part of the different mammalian skeletons by gluing the bones on a chart.  The students will share their findings and describe the mammal populations that provide prey for T. alba, the barn owl.
