Grade 7 is working on creating a weather station. Each station must be equipped with a rain gauge, a barometer, an anemometer, and a weather vane. Each team must present a one minute weather report discussing precipitation, high and low pressure, high and low temperatures, as well as dew point. The items they have created must provide the evidence and reasoning for their weather conditions.

Grade 6 was able to take a close look at a cell. An egg is one of the largest cells that you can see without a microscope. Grade 6 was able to identify the nucleus, cytoplasm, proteins, and some ribosomes. Their objective was to use an empty bottle and remove the nucleus from the cytoplasm (without breaking the yoke) to identify how the cell membrane and the nucleus envelope functions within the cell.

Good Afternoon - Grade 7 is designing a weather station. They are looking at the aspects of why predicting the weather is important. This week we looked at the different clouds and where they are located in the atmosphere as well as what a high and low pressure system is. They will be designing one of the weather instruments this week. Stay tuned for some great ideas on predicting the weather.

The 8th grade students have been learning about slope. They collected information on height and length on features around the school to calculate the slope of these features. Having the right tools included : a ladder, a tape measure, a clinometer, and a pole to extend the tape measure into the right place.
