Dexter 7th grader, Braden Mugler competed in the inaugural Science of Agriculture challenge on the Kstate Campus and won first place along with his two team members from Burden!
The 4th graders have been learning about igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. The past couple of weeks students have brought in rocks they have found. Today they got to investigate and classify rocks based on what they have learned!
The third grade has enjoyed having all of our Cowley County Extension agents bring lessons into our classroom over the past month. We have studied the life cycles of plants and animals, learned about food coming from plants and animals, and prepared a special treat called "egg in a bread basket." We have been anxiously awaiting the hatching of the eggs that were incubated in our classroom, and the chicks finally arrived! It was a great experience!
This year, 5th graders were given the opportunity to enter a poster contest put on by the Caney Valley Electric Cooperative Association. Students were to submit a poster that showed examples of electrical safety. This was a voluntary activity and 5 students in our class participated! Logan Becker, Jax Deiter, Austin Potter, Wade Martin and Wyatt Martin all submitted posters. Wyatt Martin was selected as the winner of the contest and received a $25 check. All of the posters should appear in the Kansas Country Living magazine as space allows! In addition our class was awarded a $50 check to use for the 5th grade class. We are looking forward to seeing their posters in print! Great job, 5th graders!!

6th grade students have worked for the last month on constructing a Spider Meccanoid that walks, chases you, and even squirts venom (water) on its prey. They will program it to respond to voice commands in the upcoming weeks.
LAST WEEK: After a busy week, the 6th grade class ended with a thrilling Thursday by creating Bristlebots! First, students designed their robots with tiny motors, batteries, toothbrushes and pipe cleaners. They had to troubleshoot ways to make them work, go faster and slower. Finally, they used the vibrating creatures to paint Halloween Robot Abstract Art pieces to display in the halls. "Nailed it!"
