Home of the Tigers!
The fifth graders traveled to the Natural History Museum to learn about the earth's history, dinosaurs and extreme animals. The students were amazed at the biggest mammal and the smallest. They were able to play with plate tectonics, erosion, and more as they interacted with the exhibits.
As part of a unit of study about the moon, second graders performed and experiment to learn and see the phases of the moon. Students used flashlights, foam spheres atop a stick and dark room to see how the moon orbits around the earth, which orbits around the sun to see how the different phases of the moon are created. Students had a blast!!!
The 6th Grade ventured down to the Historic Springville City Cemetery last week to do a bit of research for an upcoming science unit on microbiology. They searched out graves of children who had died before 1920. This information is then researched to find the cause of death of that person. The 6th graders usually don't complain about their Jr. High booster shots after finding out about all the deseases now held in check by vaccines!
