Zooming in on Dogs – four-legged friends in 6A during online NaWi class
Pets are the focus of the 6th graders science class. The students of 6A were particularly interested in dogs, one of the oldest and most popular companions of the human. Questions such as “How much Wolf is still in a dog?“ and "How do dogs communicate with each other and with humans?" were answered by the students.
On Friday, September 25, 2020, students of 6A brought their dogs to the science online class and presented them as follows:
