Second graders at Northwest Elementary School in Amityville recently teamed up to create their own landform projects.

In this lesson, students built three-dimensional clay models from pictures that show various landforms and bodies of water. As they analyzed, read, and researched different landforms, students realized that there are many different types of landforms and bodies of water on Earth.

Based on their clay models, students identified various landforms and bodies of water.

Northwest Elementary School in Amityville recently held numerous assembles on dental hygiene for students in grades K-2.

Kiddsmiles Pediatric Dentistry dentist Katie Neary-Paladino held a presentation on the importance of dental health. The interactive presentation featured sad faces by the foods that are unhealthy for teeth, happy faces next to the foods that are healthy for teeth, and shocked faces at the sugar in apple juice and soda. After the presentation, Kiddsmiles held a Q&A session on tips to maintain a healthy set of teeth.

Kiddsmiles also supplied each of Northwest’s students with a goodie bag of items to support good dental hygiene at home.
