Optum Health donated some kites to KMS last week. On Thursday, the KMS ERR classes got the opportunity to take advantage of the windy day and fly their kites! Each student received a kite and through trial and error and a little running, most were able to get their kites up in the air. They had a blast!

Bird Beaks

Mrs. Bennee's 7th grade science students learned about animal adaptations by using different kinds of bird "beaks" such as tweezers, spoons, and chopsticks to pick up various kinds of "food" (rice, beans, toothpicks, marbles, pennies, etc,). Students completed a data sheet to show how much of each kind of "food" they were able to collect in each 30 second round. The data was then analyzed to figure out which kind of beak is best for each food type.
