"Escape room, but with math." 8th grade students had to mathematically work their way out of an "escape room" this week, using operations with integers. Once they cracked the code, they opened the locked box to see what was inside. (It was stickers).
7th grade students in Mr. Both & Ms. Rich's social studies classes held a "Colonial Job Fair" today. The purpose of this project is for the kids to learn more about the common jobs/trades found in the 13 colonies. Jobs included, potter, miller & water cart driver.
Today is Día de los Muertos, Day of the Dead. It's a traditional Mexican holiday, where it's believed that the souls of the dead return to visit their living family members. Many people celebrate by visiting graves of deceased loved ones & setting up altars with their favorite foods, drink & photos. Today, Shannan Meilunas' 8th grade classes worked on creating their own altars. They each picked what items they wanted to display on the altars. The finished altars will be on display in the classroom.
