Cell Structures and Functions Board Games

Students were creative in making their own board games to help them learn about the plant and animal cells. They did games similar to Candy Land, Sorry, Twister, Monopoly, and even some that were a hybrid of all of them. They did a great job and I hope this helps them learn the material for the quiz on Friday!!!! :) Enjoy the pictures!

Special Friends Day

We had a great day at Chapel today with our special friends. The students did a great job showing off their talents through band and choir. Many wet eyes out there when Mikaela sang her solo! We went back to the classroom and had donuts and juice and did two activities. We did an art activity that involved knowing the bones in the hand. It was called the "Articulated Hand" and the students wrote what they were thankful for on the other side. We then did a STEM activity to build an aluminum boat, find the volume of it, and then see how many pennies they could put in it without sinking. We had a few put in all 200 pennies! Great job!

How does bullying impact our all around health?

Students today had a meaningful discussion about bullying and the tremendous amount of ways it affects a victim. The students got in groups to draw a picture of a person and then had to list the different parts of the body that are impacted. Also, they talked about the many ways it impacts our mental health and not just the physical health. It was an eye opening discussion that really hit home to the students. Here are the pictures!

7th Math: Working with Algeblocks and Versatiles

Students are learning how to add and subtract algebraic expressions in class and we are working with Algeblocks to help them be able to visually see how it works and get the answer through the steps that I showed them. They did very well! Enjoy the pictures!
