What is a thaumatrope? 6th graders learned that a thaumatrope  is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century and were tasked with making one of their own. They first had to write a research paper, create a model on their computer, and then make their thaumatrope. This project ends their unit on light.

The Franklin Institute Traveling Science Show visited our school. The kids learned about hail, lightning, twisters. This show revealed the science of weather and the students learned about where our weather comes from. They also got to see how a cloud is made, explore thunder and lightning, and even create snow.
6th graders continue their unit on light by studying the stained glass windows at the church. The students must draw a section of a window and then write a paragraph
using vocab words they learned in the unit to explain the light in the window.
A few of the vocab words are: opaque, transmission, translucent, and transparent.
The students must also explain what the image of the particular stain glass window means from a Biblical standpoint.
