"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives."

Owl Pellet

Mrs. Abby Morse's 3rd grade students connected with the Discovery Center of Springfield through a video conference to learn about animal habits, adaptations of predators and prey, and population control through food webs.  Students were able to examine different animal skulls and identify the three different types of teeth to determine the animals role in an ecosystem.  Finally students dissected owl pellets and used the bones found to determine the type of prey.

     Mark Richardson, an enthusiastic Math and Journey to Careers teacher changes the future one day at a time in his classroom. He empowers his students with uniquely structured assignments that keep them challenged and engaged. After researching the Health and Sciences cluster in Journey to Careers, the students were given an opportunity to view and participate in four internet-based interactive surgeries: cataract eye surgery, LASIK eye surgery, root canal, and hip resurfacing. These interactive surgeries allowed the students to experience what life could be like in the medical field as well as increase their knowledge of the human body. “Strong teachers don’t teach content. Google has content. Strong teaching connects learning in ways that inspire kids to learn more and strive for greatness.” (Eric Jenson) Students pictured above left to right: Raylynn Overman, Darryl Chandler, Ryan Raiford and Mr. Richardson, Skylar Schilling.


    water cycle

    Students in Mrs. Reid and Mrs. April's Kindergarten classes are learning about the Water Cycle.  Students were able to observe and participate in science experiments that went through the different cycles.  Their favorite experiment was recreating precipitation. They loved seeing the clouds (shaving cream) fill up with water (blue food coloring) and then fall down like rain.
