The 7th graders in Mrs. Fisher's and Mr. Halferty's classes just finished up their Chinese Dynasties Timelines. They measured, plotted, recorded, found or drew pictures, and colored their timelines. Then, as a final step, they added in Aurasma, focusing on a single part of their timeline. Aurasma creates an "aura" or a superimposed picture or video on top of the picture on their timeline. It's really cool. Some examples of student work will eventually be posted in the hallway so all students, teachers, and adminstrators who have the Aurasma app can look for the hidden pictures or messages.
Congratulations to team "Scrambled Chickens" (Abby, Bailey, Jonah) for winning this week's enrichment bake-off. The winning entry was mini strawberry pies with lattice tops. Thanks goes to our judges Ms. Eppley and Mrs. Turner. All food was yummy!
8th grade honors begins their argumentative research unit with a bit of fun, speed debating! They had 5 different topics and 4 minutes with each to try and list as many arguments as possible to support their assigned claim on the topic. There was lots of shouting and hand waving in their attempts to prove they were right!
