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!
