Lyman Elementary :The local forest ranger came to visit our 2nd grade classes today. He talked to the students about different trees we have in Maine, how trees grow, how long they live, and ways to keep them healthy. We took a nature walk and found a pine tree that he used a device to make a hole in the tree to figure out how old the tree is. He also talked to them about different types of trees and how we classify them.

The 2nd graders at Lyman Elementary participated in a Town Project. The students learned about economics by studying topics such as goods vs. services, exchanging money, scarcity, and making good economic choices. As a final project, they each got the opportunity to create their own business. They produced their own handmade goods and sold their items or services to their second grade peers. Some businesses included a paper airplane store, a keychain store, and a Pokemon card store!
