–Article by School News Network: Students in Sandy Brunett’s kindergarten class in Grandville and Patty Tolly’s sixth-grade class at Central Woodlands 5/6 School aren’t letting a six-year age difference get in the way of a unique educational experience. As part of a collaborative project for Groundswell, a community of partners creating opportunities for hands-on environmental learning in West Michigan, students in the two classes met at Grandville’s Central Elementary to explore local water systems. The two classes started the year off by creating penpals with the students. Then Central Elementary and Central Woodlands students officially met in person in Grandville on Oct. 11 to take a tour of the school, led by the kindergartners. They also read to each other, ate lunch and then explored Great Lakes Literacy Principles together at Buck Creek.
