Special Guest Speaker Visits 4th Grade Science
The 4th Grade was treated to a very special guest speaker last week. Mr. William Halligan, grandfather of Paige, visited the 4th Grade science class to share his extensive knowledge about minerals, rocks and the rock cycle. Mr. Halligan is a retired General Surgeon. Although he has never taken an Earth Science course of any kind, he has spent a lot of time studying geology and especially paleontology. Mr. Halligan stressed to the students that it is essential to understand the physical world around us and how it works if we are to understand ourselves and our place in nature, and make rational decisions about our planet.
