(Courtesy photos) Recently Mrs. Win- slow’s and Mrs. Ko- sosky’s second grade students learned about the Properties of Matter while seeking out ideas to answer their phenom- ena “Why do birds build different nests.” Dur- ing that time, students studied which materials were the best insulators, then developed bet- ter insulators based on their findings.
