YEAR’S ROUNDUP – May & June, 2017

We’ve had a great year with our science classes. Kinder and Transitional Kinder have learned so many interesting things. Seventh grade just finished their rattus lab, which follows the unit on human anatomy & physiology.  Sixth grade is busy finishing simple machines (the pulley lab was fantastic) and has begun the mammal/bird study with owl pellet dissections, which naturally leads into the food chain. The students are putting together an impressive report about their findings.

Next week 6th grade will learn animal behavior patterns and will demonstrate these in assigned teams. Each student will have to guess which pattern is being pantomimed. This is always a fun activity toward the end of the year.  The 6th grade worked with Kindergarten using our new microscopes and prepared slides. Now the incoming 7th grade is already familiar with the ‘scopes and we will be able to start Life Science’s microscope work easily. I’m looking forward to that!

I wish all of you a blessed, fun & safe summer. I look forward to seeing all of you at the beginning of the new school year.

 The incoming 6th grade has received a summer bingo reading challenge as well as a suggested book list. There are extras in the office for new students.
