Woodland Girls Soccer

After a slow start finding enough players, the girls soccer team is off to its best start in years. The girls compete in the big school league so are up against some fierce competition. Led by captains Peyton Klopp and Camille Manning, the team has scored 6 goals in 2 games despite dropping close decisions in both matches. Morgan Hearn is credited with 4 of the team's 6 goals, and newcomer Abby Laphan scored her first career goal against a strong Glen Landing team. Maddy Clark, Stella Eiter, Sydney Rowand and Keely Ludwig have all contributed to the teams performance, while Stephanie Tonucci has shown her athletic ability and leadership in her first year on the squad. Great job to all of the players, and good luck the rest of the season!!

7th Grade Math Class

Mrs. Tucci's 7th grade math class spent an afternoon outside in the sun learning about integers and practicing their "steps" for adding integers.

6th Grade Plant Survey

6th grade conducted an edible plant survey around the school to get a better understanding of what life would be like for neolithic peoples. They then estimated how much food was present and how long the area would support the class. They will later reflect on this when comparing this lifestyle to later agrarian (farming) societies.

Archaeology Dig

6th grade archaeology dig simulation. The students examined artifacts (many real, some reproductions) to get a better understanding how archaeologist can use clues to get a better understanding of human history.

GPS Creativity

The 5th grade AIM students expressed their creative side during a simulation activity. Students needed to simulate how a GPS works, in conjunction with the satellites in the sky, using props located in the classroom.

Geo-coaching Activity

Last week the 8th grade AIM students participated in their first geocaching activity of the year. In two teams, students located two geocaches hidden behind Woodland School. Inside, students discovered quotes from Aristotle and Julius Caesar about the law, which they then had to analyze.
