North Mahaska 3rd grade students were excited to welcome Mrs. Laura De Cook from the Mahaska County Conservation Board to their classroom.   Mrs. Laura De Cook from the Mahaska County Conservation Board taught the lesson, which involved popcorn!

The learning target was identifying needs and wants, with an emphasis on recycling, teamwork, and being environmentally friendly.  This learning target tied in directly with the Wonder’s literacy essential questions, “How do teams work together?”, and, “How can we reuse what we already have?”
