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.

Erosion and Weathering

Students in Mrs. Gray's science classes learned about erosion and weathering by creating sloped models of rivers using sand and rocks, and pouring water at the top of the slope. Students recorded their observations about the effect of the flowing water on their landscapes. Students livestreaming from home can be seen participating via laptop.

Pirates Learning Math

One of Mrs. Wise's Math classes won a reward and voted to have a "pirate party." Students chose from a variety of "pirate-y accessories" to wear, and divided into two teams.  The teams solved math problems and earned "cannonballs" of crumpled black paper for correct answers. The party ended with a "cannonball battle."

The Lemonade War

Middle School students Austin Holt and Sloane Lipson read the book The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies, a book about a brother and sister who have a 'lemonade war,' each trying to earn the most money at their lemonade stand. The students thought it would be fun to create their own lemonade stand and give lemonade to teachers as a thank you. They also shared information about the book they read and fun facts about lemons.
