K-9 Officer Brisco’s Service Honored at Hudson Prairie Elementary

Hudson Prairie 3rd Graders Honor K-9 Officer Brisco

As part of an Integrated Unit of Inquiry project, Hudson Prairie Elementary 3rd grade students are studying the community of Hudson. Students are using the following questions as part of their study of the community:

  1. Who is in our community?
  2. How do we live and work together in our community?
  3. How do we demonstrate and support growth in our learning community?

As a part of the unit, student partnered with Officer Larson and K-9 Brisco to learn about how the police are an important in keeping the Hudson community safe. Brisco retired last month, so the 3rd graders felt it was fitting to honor K-9 Officer Brisco for his service with a retirement presentation and party! Thank you Brisco for your service to the Hudson community!

Hudson Prairie 3rd Graders Explore Space

Mr. Christopher Mick, Executive Director of Space St. Croix presents to Hudson Prairie 3rd grade students.

Hudson Prairie 3rd graders are learning about space. Third grade teachers, Mrs. Gernes, Mrs. Johnson, and Mrs. Larson, invited NASA space enthusiast Mr. Mick to speak to the class. Mr. Mick is the Executive Director of Space St. Croix. He helped to teach students about many space topics including; rockets, why Pluto is no longer considered a planet, and how space exploration effects our lives and the present and future of space.

Classwork for the students included researching a planet and writing reports. To help in their reserach, students attended the movie “Hidden Figures,” a recently released film about the women who did the calculations for the first U.S. landing on the moon. Students also visited the planetarium at UW-River Falls with a presentation that provided a general overview of the earth’s motions and how that influences what we see in the day and night sky. As part of the planetarium presentation, students learned the major constellations seen from northern Wisconsin and had a tour of the solar system.
