Brick Pond Brings Science and Collaboration

Students from Allison Bartunek’s first grade and third graders in Lori St. Angelo’s class met up with Aaron Chamberlain’s and Stacy Gancos’ 7th Grade STEM classes to explore the living things in and around Ashtabula Area City School’s brick pond that resides just behind the elementary campus. The project began as a pen pal project where the
7th graders wrote letters to the first and third graders. The younger kids were so excited to respond and wrote letters back to their 7th grade penpals. “Their smiles lit up the room as they read their letters!” remarked Mrs. Bartunek “I have never seen my students so excited to write!”
Suzanne Westlake of the Ashtabula County Soil and Water District and AACS parent joined the group and helped the students explore and find animal tracks and a tree that a beaver had chewed. RoLesia Holman, the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for AACS joined the classes as well to help them discover the biodiversity of the brick pond.
The students were full of smiles and excitement as they hiked around the pond. “My pen pal was so nice to me!” said Emerald Bopp, first grader.
Stacy Gancos said, “The kids loved meeting and walking with their pen pals as they took pictures of nature around the pond. What a great collaboration! I hope we can do it again and keep this project going.”
The next step in the project is for the students to work together with their pen pals to identify species from photos they took and determine how their needs are met by the environment.

Huron Primary students and nearly 1,000 of the county’s first grade students attended the Ashtabula County Fairgrounds to take part in Ashtabula County’s 2022 “Ag Day.” This focus of this event is to learn about agriculture “hands-on” The OSU Extension coordinates this event which showcases the various types of agricultural commodities that are produced in Ashtabula County. Students were so excited as this was the first back in person field trip to AG in two years. Students were able to see a calf in person, help create their own butter, and see honeybees in a real hive!
