Second Grade Animal Projects

Our 2nd grade recently wrapped up their studies of animal life science with a culminating project. Students researched the group, habitat and features of an animal they chose. They created a research report and a diorama showing their animal in its natural habitat.

6th grade skits

Our 6th grade recently flexed their dramatic muscles by creating skits in Social Studies and Science. Social Studies students explored the history of Eastern Europe and Western Russia. Students researched events and then chose an event of interest to the group. They created their own skits based on the research. Each group selected a writer, director, actors, and prop makers. Utilized 21st century learning skills in group collaboration and application of knowledge. Incorporated standards of language arts, social studies, and technology. 

In Science each student selected a “cell part” and was instructed to bring props to represent the function. In one skit a water molecule attempted to enter both an animal and plant cell. 

Our 1st Grade is 100 Days Smarter!

Students in our 1st grade class celebrated the 100th day of school recently. Each chose 100 items to place on a t-shirt to celebrate! Great job!
