Students participated in an impervious surfaces lab where they discovered the differences between impervious and pervious surfaces by testing water infiltration rates on grass, mulch, and pavement and concrete. Check out the pictures above!
Ask your child to tell you the difference between an impervious and pervious surface.

We are off to a great start at C2C! I want to thank all the C2C teachers and staff because they have really worked hard to make C2C the place to be.
