In honor of the great naturalist Charles Darwin’s birthday on Feb. 12, fifth-graders in Judd Kramarcik’s class at Commack Road celebrated their love of science with a nature project.

Working as naturalists, the students “discovered” a new species of bird. Based on the bird’s habitat, the students were asked to think about what adaptations would help the bird to successfully survive in its ecosystem. With their scientific descriptions in hand, the students created a model of their newly discovered species, showing the bird’s adaptations.
