CRUSADERS IN (AND OUT OF) THE CLASSROOM
Last week in Mr. W.'s 8th grade science classes, students had the opportunity to handle and study fossils ranging from 40 million to 500 million years old. This week, Kaylee Nunes-Schaller, her father, and her brother Joshua brought in Josh's pet ball python Rex to show Periods 3 and 4 the bone spurs at the base of the tail. These spurs are vestigial (leftover) hind legs, evidence that snakes' ancestors looked similar to lizards. Thank you Andrew and Joshua for taking the time to bring Rex into our classes, and Kaylee for helping to set this up!
Last week, students in Mr. W.'s Honors Biology classes mashed up strawberries and extracted their DNA. Their next major lab will be determining their blood types. Hopefully it's not as messy as this one was!
During the Professional Development Day on Tuesday teachers supported Morgan Campbell, TJ Booth and Nick Rogers as they prepared to compete in the management component of the Mass ProStart Invitational. As part of the competition the students will be presenting their restaurant concept. Teachers watched their presentation and critiqued their performance. We wish them the best of luck next Tuesday! More info next week!
