Updates from the classroom

Second grade is learning about comparing numbers. We made a gator because we know that the greater gator likes to eat the bigger number. We utilized our scientific method to determine which soil would allow water to flow faster through. Our conclusion was clay soil. Sharks attacking our curriculum one chomp at a time!

The collage is their math pumpkin activity where they had to cut out different shapes to create a jack-o-lantern, add them together, complete a graph, and complete a twenty frame. In the picture of the boy with a paper, they were writing about what makes them unique and creating their own pumpkin and writing what makes their pumpkin unique.

Students in Mrs. Snell's 5th grade completed their Native American projects and presentations. Each student was assigned an individual tribe and demonstrated their knowledge by creating projects based on food, shelter, clothing or housing.
Mr. McClellan's Science Spotlight
Fri Oct 18, 2019
“This past week we have been getting ready for our move, but we still packed in some fun experiments to stimulate your children’s curiosity in scientific investigation.
First, we challenged one class with a fascinating homopolar motor demo and had them ask questions as to what they wanted to know more about. Questions are the first part of any good scientific investigation. We looked at what we did know and then explored some of the questions for this advanced group of thinkers, to further engage their inspiration for investigation and research. They seemed very mentally engaged in their thinking and questions. Question: Does the earth have a magnetic field generated by electric currents?
Secondly, we had another group learn how water can defy gravity with capillary action like trees do – and then a little about how chromatography works making a colorful display on a coffee filter using Vis-à-vis pens. Afterwards, this same group watched another example of a white volcano from another planet erupt – mmm… maybe like on Mars? Do any of us know what the lava looks like coming out of that volcano? White? Or maybe red, since it IS the “red planet”. Later, we showed how water can expand by showing the kids the results from a frozen coke can; since we were discussing how weathering can take place in rocks by freezing water.
Next, we see another group learning more about surface tension which other classes enjoyed doing earlier this month. Question: Is surface tension the REAL reason a Basilisk Lizard can walk across water?
Finally, we see a picture of Mr. McClellan challenging some students on “How does a siphon work?” Check out their science journals to see if they recorded it with diagrams and can explain it. Hey, now we know a quick way of draining our fish tanks. Super!! Miles of smiles whenever we do science. Right?
From Coach Revelles! Go Sharks
The Semifinal is today against Kissimmee Charter School at Victory Charter at 5:30pm.
If we win we play the final on Monday at 5:00pm against Mater Brighton Lakes Academy in Four Corners Upper School in Davenport.
