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.

Everyday Skills classes listened to a guest speaker from Med-Stat today. Mrs. McDonald came and spoke about sanitation and preventing food borne illness. She had students do a hand-washing activity using a black light. Thanks Med-Stat!
