Mrs. Griffiths' MTSS group is working on technical reading and writing. Technical reading requires you to follow (sometimes complex) instructions, such as a manual used by a mechanic. So students were divided into groups of 2 or 3 students. The students were given instructions on how to construct a pirate out of Lego pieces. Students pictured were trying to find the necessary Lego pieces to construct their pirate. When the groups finish, they will create their own figure and write out instructions for someone else to follow.

Mad Hatter Lesson. Second graders explored the properties of matter in science this week by using various materials to create a hat that would protect their eyes from the sun and keep them dry in the rain. Students used the Mystery Science website to explore the lesson and used their creativity to develop the hats.

Our new Principles of Biomiedical Science class is off and running. Last week the students documented and collected evidence from the crime scene. This week they are running tests on the evidence. Their first mission was to analyze the drugs located at the scene to identify what pills were next to the victim. Today they worked with fingerprints to identify whose prints were at the scene as well as how to find special features or minutiae of fingerprints.
