Canned Food Drive Success!
Congratulations to Mr. York's advisory class for bringing in the most canned food items this week! It was a close race and KMS students donated a total number of 1,315 canned goods to donate to the Kuna Food Bank.
Thank you to everyone who donated food to help out our community! We are so grateful for the effort from each Advisory class!
This week we practiced recognizing a chemical reaction by identifying chemical properties. We also learned about catalysts, which are used to speed up a chemical reaction. To wrap up our investigations on chemical reactions and catalysts, we made elephant toothpaste! This is a fun activity that can be done at home! All you need is yeast, warm water, dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. Try it this weekend at home!
Scratch Art Statistics
Sixth grade students in Mrs. Kaufman's math class are learning about statistics.
The graphs are from surveys the students created in WIN Time last week. The scratch art was a fun project to wrap up their ratio unit. Students created a ratio table from a drawing they did. They wrote the ratio three ways, and some added coordinate planes, tape diagrams and double number lines. Way to go, sixth graders!
