Denise E. Barkley

The second, fourth, and seventh grade students of Ms. Barkley and her partners collaborate on environmental studies projects. Students predict how changes in air quality and deforestation affect the environment, how environmental factors affect the water cycles, and whether an object will sink or float in solutions of various densities, and then design experiments to test their hypotheses. To continue their hands-on exploration of geological and biological sciences, students visit the Buffalo Museum of Science, Penn Dixie, and Tift Nature Preserve.
