The sixth grade students examined a series of masks from around the world. After trying a few on for size, they got down to business and posed the question: "When and why did the ancient Greeks wear masks?" For theatrical purposes, of course! This week, we will go through the range of emotions as we explore the tragedies, comedies, and histories that dominated the Golden Age of Greece.
For the first activity in our new cells and diseases unit, seventh grade took an up-close look at cells -- including their own! They will spend this unit learning about cells and cells organelles, eventually applying their new knowledge to help further new ideas for cancer research.
This week, our junior high students teamed up with classes from the lower school for some Easter-themed activities. Sadly, there is no photographic evidence of Ms. Nolan and the 7th grade class dancing to "The Bunny Pokey" with Mrs. Pacholski's kindergarten crew, but we did snap lots of pictures during the 8th grade/preschool Easter egg hunt! The eighth graders guided their buddies through Fr. Larry's garden and then enjoyed playtime in the sunshine!
