The 4th graders have been learning about static electricity in science. Today students had to rub a balloon on their head, then use the static to make an aluminum can roll. Then they had to see if their hypothesis on how far the can would roll was correct or not by measuring the distance it rolled. Some students were surprised at how far they could get their can to roll!

YESTERDAY: 6th Grade students visited the 40,000 acre Tallgrass Prairie Preserve north of Pawhuska, OK. They hiked through the 7 foot tall grasses and watched the herd of 3,000 bison roam on the near extinct tallgrass prairie. This was part of their six week unit of "Unique Kansas."
The 4th graders have been learning about conductors and insulators in science. Today they got to use what they have learned and play a game of freeze tag. Students were either an electrifying student (the ones that are "It"), a conductor, or an insulator. Since conductors let electricity pass through easily, those students had to feeeze immediately. The insulators had to be tagged 3 times before they were frozen because they don't allow electricity to flow through. The students had fun applying what they have learned!

On Thursday we had a special visitor, Donna Martin, in fifth grade. For our Native American unit, students have been learning about the different regions where Native Americans settled. We learned about the different types of clothing, food, land, tools, transportation and shelter each region used. Mrs. Martin is an expert on the Native Americans in the Plains region and came on Thursday to show our students how to build a tipi and share some stories and artifacts from that region. Students helped to build the tipi with Mrs. Martins help and then we all went inside the tipi to learn about the Native Americans and pass around artifacts. It was a great day of learning.

YESTERDAY:8th grade learning Earth Science. The lithosphere (hard part of the Earth) is made up of rocks that contain minerals. We're testing rocks for calcite. A few drops of acetic acid are dropped on a piece of limestone & granite. The limestone reacted by producing bubbles of CO2 gas. The granite remained unchanged.
