Glaciers and Landslides

In their study of earth science, Middle School students explored the nature of glaciers and landslides using models. "Glaciers" made by freezing water with stones and sand in the bottom were scraped over clay "land" to simulate deposition and grooving of the underlying rock. The effect of vegetation on the occurrence of landslides was observed by measuring the angle at which "land" began to slide with and without rooted trees.

Animals After Dark

Lower School Green Team students learned about nocturnal animals in an exciting way.  With lights off in the library, Media Specialist Amanda Forbes read by flashlight from a book titled After Dark: Poems about Nocturnal Animals by David L. Harrison.  The students located pictures of the animals in the poems by flashlight. Then Ms. Forbes led the students through creating acrostic poems about some of the animals in the book, and each student chose an animal about which to write their own acrostic poem.
