  • Weathering, Erosion and Deposition Lego Style

    Posted by SARAH BRISSING at 9/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
    During science students worked to build statues out of legos  (rocks). Students then began a relay race to weather and erode the "rocks".  Students broke off a piece of the rock ( a lego). They then put the sediment (lego piece) on their belly and crab walked it back to their starting line ( erosion) and then deposited it into their teams bucket (deposition).

    What a powerful team building experience! Students work together to problem solve. This is such a great experience to remind the students to encourage, not discourage. The counselors at Highroad are such professionals. Every year I am reminded I am a facilitator it is the job of the students to explore and learn from their exploration. It is a great day when everyone learns something!

  • Erosion Prevention Methods

    Posted by SARAH BRISSING at 9/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
    Today we examined three kinds of soil. One container with "pure" soil (maybe a stick or two), soil with rocks and sticks, and soil with grass planted in it. We poured water through each container to see which one would produce the cleanest water. We decided that the soil with the grass was most similar to a glass of water that we would drink There was a minimal amount of sediment that eroded from that container. Students were able to recognize that planting grasses would help to prevent erosion if they were building homes.
     
    Special thanks to Mr. Metz for tearing into his golf course of a lawn. :)

  • Gummy Bear Science Lab

    Posted by SARAH BRISSING at 9/9/2013 4:30:00 PM
    Today we began our gummy bear science lab. Students are working to demonstrate the scientific method. Students are making qualitative and quantitative observations about their gummy bears. We are wondering what changes will occur to the gummy bears when left to soak overnight in various substances.

  • Beginning of the School Year

    The school year is off to a great start. It has been a real joy working with your children the last couple of weeks. They are hard workers and a lot of fun. Thanks for all you do at home to support your children and the work we do at school.
