“Zombie Island”

Yesterday in 5th grade science, the class was marooned on “Zombie Island”. They had to use the design process and work in groups to design and build a series circuit. Every group built a successful circuit and made the light bulb work in order to protect themselves from the zombies. They even installed switches in their circuits! Today, they will be given additional bulbs and batteries to see if they can successfully create parallel circuits.

5th & 6th Grade Researchers

The 5th/6th grade have worked for the last week on researching either an extinct or endangered animal. They researched and took notes on a specific animal, then chose  a project to complete to share what they learned. Students wrote magazine articles, short stories, created infographics, and one made a video. Students shared their final products with the class today.

7th Grade “Real Life” Math

Yesterday, the 7th grade Math students each bought a vehicle with 2 extra add-ons.  Then, they calculated taxes, the down payment, interest, insurance and monthly payments.  Today, they are taking out 10 of their best friends for their birthday, ordering 10 different meals, calculating their meals with a discount along with an 18% tip.  They’ve had fun this week while being surprised at how fast their money is spent!
