Fourth Graders Explore Energy
As part of the fourth grade's scientific exploration of energy, the students investigated the way that energy can be transferred between objects and changed into different forms. For this experiment, students arranged dominoes
to collide into other objects in order to produce sounds and chain reaction between dominoes
. Students enjoyed testing their predictions, recording their observations, and analyzing their final results.
Fifth Graders Work on Immigration Unit
The fifth grade classes have been very busy working on our Immigration Unit. From creating Family Trees, to researching Famous Immigrants, to interviewing an actual immigrant to the United States, to compiling an Immigration Cookbook, to reading a realistic fiction book about Immigration, the classes have been totally immersed in the Immigration Experience. We have traveled from the cold Russian shtetl, over the rocky ocean waves, to the "Golden Medina" of America. It has been a wonderful learning experience that the students have thoroughly enjoyed.
