Students in Mr. Howett's science class used their iPads to locate interesting science articles on the Inspire database. Mrs. Eberhardt, teacher librarian, helped them locate, then cite their articles. We then read these articles and are working on writing summaries using the RACES format - Restate the Question, Answer the Question, Cite evidence from the article, Explain why you chose that evidence and how it supports your answer, and Summarize your paragraph.

Inspire is available to everyone in Indiana free of charge. There are lots of magazine, newspaper, and technical databases always at your digital fingertips! Just go to the following website and read great articles, find recipes, locate how to articles on home improvement. Enjoy!

Students in Mrs. Fisher and Mr. Ringler's social studies classes are researching and finding their own historic twin.  Working with Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, students have determined their own dreams and goals, taken a personality quiz to find strengths and weaknesses, and are now reading about different heroes in history to find their match. Our goal is that our students learn that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, abilities and challenges, and everyone is able to pursue dreams and make a difference.

The February Maker Event at the Edgewood Library Learning Commons focused on electronics.  Students were able to explore with Little Bits, Makey Makey, Snap Circuits, and Chibitronics.  Several students created a card that lit up using Chibitronics.  Others produced music using vegetables as a keyboard with Makey Makey.
Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, would like to thank Region 8 and the Schwab Foundation for providing training and supplies for students to create with Chibitronics.

Our Makerspace is in need of materials.  If you are interested in donating, we would love to have your Legos, K*NEX, or other building toys.  We had one generous contribution of a Snap Circuits set.  Crafting students would be happy to use paper punches, scrapbook paper, stamps and ink.  Both teachers and students would make use of a Cricut die cut machine!  Stay tuned for more Makerspace news!
