Students in 5 - 1 used vegetable shortening to see how a layer of fat is an excellent adaptation in cold climates. The students covered one hand with the fat and then placed both hands in a bucket of very cold water. The results were amazing. CLICK the headline to see more photos.
Students had the opportunity to explore a variety of careers and learn about different aspects of college with 10 different professionals and a college counselor. They learned about career paths, responsibilities, likes and dislikes, and how their current education relates to the world of work. Thank you to the family members of our students who volunteered time out of their very busy schedules. CLICK on headline for more photos.
The entire 5th grade worked on a career research project in the library with Mrs. McParland and Mrs. Rapacki. Sixty-nine of the students who completed the project, volunteered to become Career Ambassadors. As Career Ambassadors they were assigned to visit a class to share what they had learned. Two to three Career Ambassadors were sent to each Kindergarten through 4th Grade class in the school. Each student prepared a speech and poster and some even choose to create a PowerPoint presentation or dress up and bring props. CLICK on the headline for more photos.
