At Brown Street Academy I watched a transformation happen with the children in front of me. Three classes of 2nd grade students filled the room, and we traveled on a journey, experiencing different weather fronts and forms of water. We explored the fish breathing in the streams and the way the ice crystals of a frozen pond make our winter skies a muted rainbow.
