and multiplying fractions through song! The songs are short and fun,
but are filled with all the step-by-step rules necessary to solve the
problems. Students are creating interactive notebooks that include a

Exciting things are happening on the 8th grade hall. In Social Studies, students created pamphlets and 3D Salt Dough maps of the regions of North Carolina. Some of the maps are on display in the media center. Check them out! In Language Arts, students will get to choose their favorite fictitious character and compare that character to themselves. The results should be very interesting. In Science, students have been studying compounds, mixtures and elements. Students created posters, flyers, trading cards and element heroes and villains. Some even dressed as their character. One student's element picture is shown above. Great job! In Math, students are studying rational and irrational numbers.
