What And How Are Our Students Learning?
Here are a highlights of the learning happening in the Middle School and the what and how the students in those classes are learning this month.
6th grade students used pennies, paper clips and paper towels to explore the properties of water. They dropped water droplets on the pennies to see cohesion, investigated drops of water on wax paper and glass to explore adhesion, floated paper clips on top of water to see surface tension, and saw water climb up paper towels to explore capillary action.
In 6th grade English, students have come to the end of Anne Frank’s sad journey in the Secret Annex. As a wrap-up project, students are using their script writing skills and creating and performing a script based on a scene they have chosen from the book. It is a fun way to end their study of such a serious topic and time in history.
7th grade has been studying the skeletal and muscular system in science. They learned how snakes use their 15,000 muscles (as opposed to a human's 800 muscles) to move their bodies, as well as what their skeletal system looks like. They had the opportunity to feel the spine and muscles of a live snake. They also dissected chicken wings to peel back the skin and observe the muscles, fat, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. They even learned how to grab, hold, and pull the tendons and ligaments to make the wing move! [INSERT PHOTO]
In 7th grade English, students have been reading October Sky and have seen Homer Hickam win the national science fair, and we have rejoiced as we have seen him accomplish his dream of working for NASA. In order to display their talent for public speaking, students worked in groups to record a live news report for one of the newsworthy scenes from the novel. It was fun to see the talent these students hold.
In science, 8th graders are learning about waves and electromagnetic radiation.
