What's new in seventh grade, you ask? Lots!
In Ms. Scheiber's Science class, the students created their own experiments. They decided a variable to test, then determined what kind of data to collect -- either qualitative or quantitative. After following the experimental procedure (and having quite a bit of fun!) in the Dank Haus cafeteria, they named variables and analyzed the data.
In Mrs. Prinzivalli's Language and Literature class, the seventh grade played a competitive game of grudgeball to review for their poetry test. In a close battle, the Supa Fires pulled off a splendid victory!
In Ms. Denten's Individuals and Societies class, the poor seventh grade students suffered through yet another quiz on the geography of Europe. Sadly, no photos exist of this torturous class session. Feel free to test your own knowledge of the countries at your leisure!
On Friday, the eighth grade kicked off the first of many buddy activities for the year. Ms. Jensen's second grade class graciously hosted us for an afternoon of learning and fun. Expert readers Isa and Alex shared stories about Johnny Appleseed with the second graders. The buddies also participated in arts and crafts, resulting in beautiful stained glass apples. Made of multi-colored tissue paper and contact paper, these crafts will surely brighten Ms. Jensen's room throughout the autumn season! Afterward, the eighth grade invited their buddies to join them for recess. It was wonderful to see them continue to include their buddies during this extra special recess session.
