Social Studies

Today our students presented their Pear Deck Presentations on their regions projects. Each group made an interactive presentation to share with the entire class. Visit our classroom website to see the Google Slides Presentations your student created.

Science

Our young geologists are wrapping up their investigation into whether or not rocks contain calcite. The young geologists allowed their evaporation dishes to sit overnight in order to observe which rocks contained calcite. Below are pictures of the geologists observing their findings.


**Ask your student how they knew which rocks contained calcite in their evaporation dishes... (there were dried white crystals in the evaporation dishes)

Harlem Ambassadors Assembly

On Thursday students were treated to a sneak peak of the Harlem Ambassadors. In this assembly the Harlem Ambassadors talked about motivating students to do their best in school, and showed off a few of their basketball skills!


The students really enjoyed the presentation as it was filled with dancing, humor, and interaction with the students.
