Third Graders have been wrapping up our Forensics Science unit by learning about where the evidence goes after the Forensic Scientists analyze it - The Trial Court. Students have been researching the various roles in the courtroom, from judge to jury, and teaching their classmates the importance of each role.
Second Graders have been learning about all the components of the ALERT classroom. They are working on Critical Thinking (Boundary Breaker) Creativity (Spontaneous Problem), Habits of Mind, Questioning (Mystery Box) and a variety of Brain Stretchers like Matrix Logic Puzzles, Plexor Puzzles and, Analogies. 2nd Graders are also working on the M3 Math Curriculum which is "Digging in to Data."
