Environmental educators/teachers from Nature’s Classroom Institute in Mukwonago came to Whitewater Middle School on the morning of Friday, February 16th to dissect turtles with selected 6th grade students as a classroom extension project. Students were able to see firsthand what the turtles had recently eaten and how their bodies are specially adapted for optimum survival in their environment.  It was especially exciting to study the eye and to also uncover the brain.  Pictured with middle school students are Nature’s Classroom teachers, Briana Kyle and Satira Lord.
