DECEMBER 2018 - Saint Nick visited our school today!!!
December 2018 After learning about the mummification process, the 6th grade students took part in a group STEM challenge. Using paint, paint brushes, cans with lids, and clay, students designed canopic jars. In ancient Egypt, human organs were removed and preserved inside canopic jars. Using apples slices, students measured the mummification process by adding salt, baking soda, and/or vinegar to their apples. They placed the apples into the jar and wrote down the exact measurements of ingredients that they used. Throughout the course of four days students monitored the progress of the apples and recorded what they observed. We then discussed which ingredients best preserved the apples.
Our 6th graders are learning about Egypt's mummification process in a really cool way!
The Third Grade completed a STREAM project on forces and motion. They created their own carnival game and had to explain how force and motion relates to their game.
