Science Mural

Rylander Elementary students are very excited about our wonderful Science mural.  Teachers of all grade levels are able to utilize this amazing resource to educate students about a variety of topics, including the water cycle, erosion, energy sources, natural resources, carbon cycle, photosynthesis, and landforms.  Each trip past the mural allows students to apply their Science knowledge to a newly discovered image embedded in the mural.  Teachers enjoy how the mural has influenced spontaneous Science discussions and collaboration.
