This week the 7th graders studied the history and culture of the ancient Byzantine Empire. They learned that mosaic art was popular during this time. They had some time on block day to get creative with paper and make their own designs. They had a lot of fun doing temporary designs on their desktops or "permanent" art glued onto paper plates.
Edgewood FACS students in Successful Living classes made snickerdoodle cookies. The assignment was to use math skills to cut the recipe in half. The goal was to do the math correctly and eat good cookies. Incorrect math meant eating mistakes! The room smelled delicious!
Students took advantage of Student Resource Time (SRT) to gather in their National History Day teams and work on last minute preparations in the library. It was interesting to watch as they finished creating their project boards, practiced speeches, finished their websites, added last minute touches to their annotated bibliographies and process papers. Mrs. Eberhardt, Mr. Devlin and Mr. Ringler wish all our 8th grade students a well deserved break after all their hard work and effort this past two months!
