Australia Culture Day in Third Grade


AUSTRALIAWe had the awesome chance in November to have Marco Zegarra's mom come visit our 3rd grade classes to talk to us about Australia. Madeline Wallen wanted to share what she learned at this awesome Culture Day experience. She says, "Mrs. Zegarra taught us about Australia. Australian Aboriginees make something called a 'Diggery Doo'. It is a hollow stick made out of a Eucalyptus tree. It is cool! They also use a "Billy boil". The use it to cook over the fire. In Australia they eat 'grubs'. When the eat the grubs, they eat them alive!!! Grubs are some of the protein that they eat.

Space Center Day in 6th Grade

6th Grade Students: Daerik & Gabriel

Our Sixth Grade went to the Christa Mcauliffe space center as a field trip. The trip was awesome. There were two parts. One part was the space simulation. We got into ships for the simulation. There were three ships. The USS Magellan, the USS Odyssey, and the USS Phoenix. We had some challenges that we needed to do so that we could accomplish our mission. One of the challenges was that we had to convince an alien species called the Enooks to save themselves from dangerous conditions caused by something in the Spitzer Nebula.
