Middle School Science



Grades 6/7- Students have been working hard on projects on the subject of space programs in the United States.  Their choices were programs such as: Apollo, Gemini, Skylab, and  Space Shuttle.  They were asked to research the purpose of the program, cost, who were the people involved, where the facilities are found, and dates of missions and launches.  Some students choose to work individually or work in pairs.



Grade 8- Students have been also been working on a project.  They are creating cell part analogies.  Guest teacher Mrs. Dorman presented a YouTube Video showing the students how cell parts can be compared to a city.  With that example the students formulated their own analogies to present to their  fellow classmates.  They had to follow a rubric to understand their learning.
