Kosciuszko's 6th grade teacher Mr. Biro has his 6th grade students doing fun college projects!
Each student first chooses their profession. The student then researches, through available literature and the Internet, the best college, the various methods and available resources to pay for their chosen college, and the outlook of their profession.
This project not only gives the kids the opportunity to learn about a career, it also introduces them to the available tools (for example, scholarships and grants) so they can reach their goals. The students, at the end of this project, present their findings through a PowerPoint presentation.
While studying the solar system, second grade students at Kosciuszko school particated in a home/school project where they made space creatures!
Using objects like boxes, plates, carboard tubes, play dough, garbage bags, and milk jugs, students created the creatures and then wrote about them. The projects turned out wonderful! The writing part of this project consisted of six sentences: the creature's name, the creature's home planet, three sentences about the creature, and a conclusion sentence.
The students gave a presentation of their project and were graded on creativity, the writing, the oral presentation, and being on time. All three second grade rooms at Kosciuszko participated in the project (Ms. Fox, Mrs. Lew, and Mrs. Dollhopf).
The second grade classes at Kosciuszko school are just finishing a unit on fossils.
J.E. Jones School is currently doing the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser (sponsored by the American Heart Association).
With this program, children jump rope as they raise funds to support lifesaving heart and stroke research. The children are asked to get sponsors to help raise money for this cause. Students can then earn thank you gifts, depending on the amount of money they raise. This program teaches both physical fitness and the value of community service to students and their families.
