Biology students have been studying the anatomy of different animals and comparing their body structures to those of humans. We have been dissecting frogs over the past several class days and are about to dissect fetal pigs to study comparative anatomy between the two organisms.
Students in Physics have been researching and presenting information about different types of electromagnetic radiation in our waves unit. The students are practicing writing research papers or creating PowerPoint presentations.
Middle School Science students have been surprised by how exciting it is to study rocks, and geology, and, of course, rivers. Everyone is very excited about taking a tour of the Big Four Bridge and eating our lunch beside the river at Kingfish of Louisville to practice our ECC skills.
Our rock study started with the 60 Minutes piece on the Webb telescope where we learned about how the earth and everything on it started with stardust. Here is the link in case you want to take a look at this and talk over with your student.
K-2 students are learning about light. They are learning about reflection, light sources, and how light travels.
Fifth grade students are learning about Earth’s water distribution. They have researched saltwater, fresh water, and frozen water percentages. They are starting to show these percentages with graphs and in labs they have completed.
This week in library we have been learning about different types of rocks and how they are formed. Specifically, the differences in igneous, sedimentary & metamorphic. We explored how rocks that were plucked recently from nature felt compared to those out of a tumbler. We identified tactile graphics of the three types of rock formations and discussed what type of rock is prevalent in KY - sedimentary. We concluded by reading a book called Everybody Needs a Rock by Byrd Baylor. We then took a walk outside and each student collected a pet rock just like Ms. Unker had in the 70s😊

- Take time to notice fleeting beauty.
- No rainy day lasts forever.
- Even positive changes can be scary.
- Not everyone will bloom at the same time.
- Growing takes time and patience.
