The Importance of Power

Today the 5th graders students went on a field trip to the Springville power plant. We learned about power and safety. First we learned to call 811 before we dig outside. Second, we learned how to use power without getting electrocuted, for example, hair dryers and bathtubs. We had lots of fun playing with the shiny ball of death and generating electricity with the bike. We enjoyed cookies and lemonade for a yummy treat on a hot sunny day.

Mrs. Simpson's Read-a-thon

The kids in Mrs. Simpson's class have been working hard learning the routines and procedures for a new year. They voted to do a read-a-thon for their reward. I love that they wanted to read as their reward! They really are great kids!

Reasons for the Seasons

Sixth grade students have been discovering the reasons we have seasons.  As part of this discovery, students participated in a lab with four globes set up around the sun and worked to determine which globe represented each season.  Students gathered data by reading multimeters, measuring shadows, and analyzing the tilt at each globe.  In the end, students were able to correctly identify the season of each globe by collaborating and interpreting their data.

Becoming a Butterfly

In Ms Thomas’s class we are learning all about living and non living things. We had the awesome opportunity for the past month watching a caterpillar turn into a beautiful butterfly! A big thank you to Mrs. Tew for bringing it in for us to watch! Last week while we were reading we saw it pushing its way out of its chrysalis right before our eyes! We couldn’t wait to see what it would look like. On Wednesday we released it outside into nature. What a fun experience watching this all unfold!!!

Landmarks

This week in First Grade we have been learning about our State and National landmarks.  The students were able to listen and watch videos about different landmarks and then create a "chatterpix" to teach each other about their landmark.  Then the students choose their favorite landmark and made a clay sculpture of it.  What a fun hands-on experience for all of us!
