Today in science, the students constructed Plant/animal cells. Here is a picture of one of the group's animal cells!
This week the students created skits that demonstrated the Great Depression. There are pics below of their groups. Today, we had the school spelling bee. We are extremely proud of Myles (left) and Trip (right) on making it so far and representing our class so well! GREAT JOB BOYS!!
This week, the students conducted experiments on physical and chemical changes. They had a blast!
This week the students were assigned a famous Inventor. They had several things they had to research about that inventor with their groups. They presented their invention posters to the class and the class took notes on their information. All of the groups did an amazing job!
- We had so much fun going to Lassiter High School to see the Atlanta Symphony play today! The kids loved it!
- This week in Social Studies, we were learning about immigrants entering Ellis Island back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. These students performed an impromptu skit in front of the class and did an amazing job!
On Friday, October 23, we had career day! The students loved our presenters! We had an architect, an insurance agent, a sports marketer, and on occupational therapist. The students were so engaged in all of the speakers, took notes and asked lots of questions! I know what some of our students want to be when they grow up now! :)
Today the students presented their disaster projects. They did an awesome job! Doesn't it look as if we were actually there? I am not able to upload the videos here, but if you would like to see a few clips, check out our instagram page! :)
This week, the students had a blast learning how to break decimals apart. This small group (bottom right) took a moment to show their pearly whites while putting together a decimals puzzle. In the other three pictures, small groups were performing their nutrition advertisements for Health! They were absolutely hilarious!
Our Civil War replication. The students were able to see an up close and personal version of what a Civil War battlefield looked like.
Below and to the right, students were playing a game similar to "headbands" to review vocabulary for Science on constructive and destructive forces.
Below and to the right, students are working in small groups to research information given to them about the civil war. They are taking notes on their readings on sticky notes. They will compile their notes and write the most important parts on the chart paper. Finally, the groups will present their topics to the class and the class will take notes off of their findings for their interactive notebooks.
