The seventh graders are reading novels in social studies and participating in literature circle discussions.  Why read a novel in social studies?  Groups are reading different novels that are all set in the 20th or 21st centuries and are all dealing with an important event in history or with an important social issue facing the world today.  Today we are all about 3/4 of the way through our novels and are discussing if we would add a new character to the story and what their role would be and what kinds of questions we have about our novels - such as what we don't understand, what we wonder about, surprises in our stories, etc.  Many students have been surprised at how interesting their books have been.

The seventh graders have just wrapped up their World War II unit and we spent some time reviewing the Holocaust.  In our final activity we read the poem "To the Little Polish Boy Standing with His Arms Up" by Peter L. Fischl and then the students wrote their own letter or poem to the little Polish boy.  The goal was to help the students think about compassion for others and, hopefully, make history a little more personal by drawing them deeper into a famous photograph from that time period.

Miss Rohrer, FACS teacher, and Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, have been working with students in the Stitch 'N Save class to create e-textiles.  Students made their own pattern, then diagramed electronic circuitry on this pattern.  They cut their pattern out on felt or fleece, then had to sew on their electronics parts correctly so the light bulbs worked.  Each success was met with shouts of glee as light bulbs activated!  Be sure to have your student show you their finished electronic pillow project next week!

Students in Mr. Fleming's science classes are learning about the rock cycle.  They received different chocolate pieces (semi-sweet, milk, white, mini, and M & M's) which they had to "weather" by smashing them into pieces, or sediments.  Then they layered the pieces on foil, showing how sedimentary rocks form.  They will then apply pressure to their foil packets of sediments to demonstrate how metamorphic rocks form.  Lastly, they will heat their packets to show how igneus rocks form.  It should be interesting to see what happens with all their chocolate pieces!

Mrs. Helser's Honors Language Arts class has spent the past three weeks working on researching information, then developing a plan to help combat current issues in society.  The team of Abby, Skyler, Cora, and Morgan researched the topic of teen suicide, then emailed Ben Higgins asking if he would come speak to Edgewood students about depression and suicide.  Mr. Higgins graciously agreed and shared his own story of how he has asked for help when he has struggled.  Our students and staff appreciate the work these students did, and appreciate Mr. Higgins coming to talk with our students about this serious topic.  Way to make a difference!

For the last several days Edgewood's 7th graders have been studying Medieval China and Japan. They were required to make a 3-D object or research a topic for a poster related to the history or culture of China and Japan.  We've had some Mongol catapult competitions, "porcelain" displays, and Mongol/Samurai armor and weaponry among others.  It's been alot of fun, especially measuring how far a catapult will throw a ping pong ball!

With the increased use of images in school work, it is important to give credit to the creator of all images, after making sure the image is free to be used.  
Edgewood offers the Image Quest database with hundreds of images that are free to use in student work.  Students may also look for free images in Google by clicking on Settings in Google, then scrolling down to Usage Rights and selecting Free to Use.  Once the student has selected an image, that image must be cited.  Click the link below for guidelines on citing.

All of Mrs. Fisher's and Mr. Halferty's social studies students are working on projects related to medieval China and Japan. They have options of making a 3-D project such as Mongol or Samurai armor and weaponry, "porcelain and ceramics," maritime inventions plus many other options. Or they could research a topic such as a particular dynasty (Tang, Song, Ming) or an art form (Japanese tea ceremony, Japanese Noh or Kabuki theater), and several other options. We've been having lots of fun with cardboard, duct tape, air-dry clay, and popsicle sticks.

In 7th grade social studies our students are learning about GDP (gross domestic product), per capita GDP (per person GDP), and standard of living. They learned the definitions then went to the World Bank website and looked up ten countries to compare the numbers and draw conclusions as to the possible overall strength of the economies, ranking them in the order they think they should be in. We discussed the varying factors in determining standard of living and how numbers can compare and tell you a story about each country.

In 7th grade social studies we did a three station rotation to learn about the Islamic religion. At one station they watched Makkah Live, the 24/7 Livestream from the Kaaba in Mecca. The students watched Muslims worshipping and recorded their observations. Another station was a comparison of holy books. They read the story of Moses and the Burning Bush from the Bible and from the Quran and compared the wording and the way the story was told. At the third station they worked in teams to create a Five Pillars of Islam "storybook" to summarize the meanings of the Five Pillars. The students had a lot of fun and really good conversation was generated while they watched the worship at the Kaaba.

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.

In Mrs. Fisher's social studies classes we took a break from our regular learning activity to try a new idea suggested by our nurse, Mrs. Akers.  It's to bring physical activity into our learning.  Students reviewed both cardinal directions and key locations in Mesopotamia by calling out a location on the map and jumping in the correction direction.  It resulted in a lot of laughs and many students focused in on the map more than they had before when they just labeled a paper map.  And, of course, they learned that North does not equal up!
