Space Movies

Kosciuszko

As part of their science unit on space, third grade students at Kosciuszko School worked in groups to create short documentaries about one of three topics: solar eclipses, lunar eclipses, or phases of the moon. Student groups needed to write the movie and then determine the best way to film it using digital camcorders.  Once filmed, the students edited the scenes of their movies together using a computer.

In the process, students were able to better conceptualize these solar phenomena, enhance their critical thinking skills, learn how to work well in groups, and increase their comfort with technology all while having fun.

Young Composers

General Mitchell, Park View

 

Second grade students at Park View School created original compositions and performed them in a recital on March 19. For their songs, the students used quarter notes, half notes, eighth notes, and quarter rests. Then they performed the songs with percussion instruments, such as triangles, jingle bells, maracas, tambourines, guiros, and tick-tocks.

On March 20, the third grade students at General Mitchell School also created their own unique compositions using quarter notes, eighth notes, half notes, quarter rests, and the melody notes, "do", "re", and "mi". Songs were performed on alto, soprano, and bass xylophones.

Our young composers from both schools charmed and entertained parents, family, friends, and staff. No two songs were identical and both recitals were a great success!

Game of Life

Game of Life, General Mitchell

Sixth graders at General Mitchell School are taking part in the Game of Life project. For the Game of Life project, students become pseudo adults. They research employment opportunities and formally apply for jobs by filling out applications and writing cover letters. In this process, students also experience job interviews with local community business members. Once jobs are obtained, students learn about the real estate and transportation markets, which require them to budget for housing and transportation costs.

The students ultimately learn to live within a budget, maintain bank accounts, and plan fiscally for the future.

Students randomly select a "life" that represents various socio-economic backgrounds and family compositions; for example: married with three kids, divorced without any kids, single parent with disabled child, or just out of college. Students also randomly select incident cards that reflect the ups and downs of real life financial experiences encountered as adults.

Several Internet web quests are required throughout the project. Some of these quests include the research of jobs (along with base salaries and educational requirements), mortgages, taxes, rent of properties within a given location, and bluebook values.

This wonderful project is a yearly project and its benefits will hopefully stay with the students throughout their lives.
