January was a busy month for Kindergarten. Field trips to the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium gave the students opportunities to observe creatures, their habitats, and how their specific features help them live.

A trek into the forest area adjacent to school let the students use their "science eyes" to observe living and non-living things. According to scientists, a stick, fallen from a tree, is a living thing!
