7th Graders practicing their marching skills just like the Continental Army did with Baron Von Steuben of Germany during the American Revolution!!
3rd Grade completed a science experiment to see what would happen if gummy bears were added to 4 different liquids. Students tested their hypotheses by letting the gummy bears sit in liquids overnight and observed/measured when they came into the classroom this morning! Many students thought they would dissolve but found that the gummy bears grew when added to a liquid. #scienceisfun #growyourownpolarbear
5...6...Pick up sticks!! The 7th grade took advantage of the nice day to help clean up around the trees!!
Pre-k read a book about snow balls, at the end of the book the boy snuck a snow ball in for later and placed it in the freezer. So we had a discussion about what would happen if we put a snowball in the fridge and in the freezer. We discussed what would happen and made a prediction. Then today we looked at the outcome and talked about what needs to go in the fridge and what belongs in the freezer.
Second graders became chocolate connoisseurs today. Vermilion County Ag in the Classroom taught us about the process of processing cacao into chocolate!
