Susan Ford’s 3rd grade class is learning about the ocean and creatures in it. They are reading, completing writing and art activities, watching ocean and sea life videos, doing sea-related computer activities and talking about sea life.

Pam Sherod’s 5th grade class took their AIMS tests last week after many hours of preparing. In science, they have been studying forces and simple machines, and made catapults last week. They competed with other 5th grade students to see who could build a catapult that shot the farthest. In social studies, the students are learning about the Revolutionary War and making pocket books to help them remember key information.

Christen McCracken’s 5th grade class also constructed catapults and were involved in the 5th grade competition. Students also created solar ovens to bake s’mores using pizza boxes donated by Papa John’s Pizza. Finally, they ended last week experimenting with density and solving a Chinese puzzle made of three-dimensional shapes.
