Arctic and Antarctic Explorations!

December 16, 2020 | Becca Brasser

We have been immersed in the Arctic and Antarctic for two weeks now and each child has chosen an animal to study. From orcas to narwhals to musk oxen to penguins, our classrooms are brimming with animal experts. Each child has created a painting showing details from their animal’s body, a three-dimensional paper habitat, and a representation in clay.

We hope you enjoy seeing our work in this slideshow!

Becca Brasser

Teacher, Grade 1

Becca Brasser has been teaching first grade at Mustard Seed School since 2002. She’s passionate about teaching children to read, write, experiment, and take risks as they explore the world around them. Her own studies (including a Master of Arts degree from New Jersey City University) have given her expertise and experience in the area of literacy education.

Ms. Brasser especially enjoys taking her students on field trips all over the New York Metropolitan area, traveling on foot, subway, bus, commuter train, and ferry. Some favorite trips: the Hudson Hike, the New York Transit Museum, and the Central Park Zoo to study penguins.

Although she lives in the city, Ms. Brasser loves escaping to nature and finding it in her everyday life as well. She loves to explore rivers and lakes, woods and mountains with her husband Matt, their daughter, Annika, and son, Theo.
