Exeter-Milligan Update: Science Happenings

E-M Science Happenings
By Lorie Sliefert, E-M Science Instructor

Exeter-Milligan Zoology class are currently studying about fish.  We have discussed the 3 groups of fish as jawless fish, cartilaginous fish, and bony fish.  This last week we looked at cartilaginous fish by dissecting a dogfish shark.  Next week we will dissect a stingray and a perch.   The girls are really excited about this unit and love doing dissections.  We will eventually study amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals as we work our way through the different types of vertebrates.

Girl Scout Troop Attends Village Board meeting

From the left Girl Scouts in Troop 20703 Chezney Kanode, Brooklyn Oldehoeft and Kendyll Tomlinson are busy taking notes during the Exeter Village Board meeting on Monday evening.  The scouts were working on their Inside Government and Celebrating Commuinty badges.  They met with Chairman Alan Michl and Village Clerk Becky Erdkamp for a supper meeting before the board arrived.  According to their leader, Kendra Oldehoeft, “They interviewed him after a brief intro of his role duties and brainstormed with him ways that they can be active citizens and exhibit good citizenship.”

The girls asked about the hardest thing Michl had had to do in his role and also about unique laws.  The scouts found the evening “interesting and very different than they expected,” according to Oldehoeft.
