Third Grade students in Mrs. Trapanotto’s class proudly display their “Creature Offspring”. As part of the new Amplify Science Program, third graders are learning about inherited traits. Students followed a genetic code pattern to design offspring (out of modeling clay) that had combined traits from the program’s modeled “Parent Creatures”.
On Monday, March 11, 2019 Miss Capone and the students in the Grade 5 math enrichment program celebrated Pi Day. Students learned about the history of and mathematical significance of Pi (π). They also engaged in several Pi Day math activities, moving from station to station. Students explored how to find the circumference and area of circles, they answered word problems and they graphed the first 100 digits of Pi on a bar graph. Overall, the students had a great time exploring Pi, as it enhanced and enriched their math skills!
