Intermediate School News: February 13 – February 17, 2017

PE

7th grade PE participated in a Core Strengthening video as part of the Daily Burn app. The students enjoyed the change in pace.


Science

The 7th grade science classes are learning about the structure of DNA using K’nex models.  They then simulated how DNA would replicate and make an exact copy of itself.

Social Studies

8th Grade Social Studies will begin an extensive study of the Jacksonian Era featuring “Old Hickory” himself, Andrew Jackson. This will be one the more interesting topics that we have discussed this year! Jackson’s political career and accomplishments will be the focus of this study. 8th graders are also beginning preparation for our annual Wax Museum, which will be held on May 18th. More information will be provided on this exciting event as we get closer to the end of the school year!

7th Grade will continue their trip around the world with exciting presentations designed by the students.
