Lower School News: October 24 – October 28, 2016

3rd grade

Third grade students are certainly “Falling for Inherited Traits”! Students participated in cross-curricular activities in Science, Math, & Technology through their study of Inherited Traits (and personal connections to the traits), data representation, and use of technology by creating a Haiku deck slide show presentation.

Third grade students worked in partners to interpret frequency and tally tables then transferred data into bar graphs. Students participated in discussion and shared explanations of the bar graphs with their class.

Kindergarten

Members of the Clarksville area Red Cross stopped by to visit with our Kindergarten classes and discuss the many ways they help people throughout the world. Children asked questions regarding hurricane Matthew and the Red Cross response to it. The students then donated water and other items that were collected during our Homecoming week.

Math Lab

Students in second grade learned about fact families using addition and subtraction facts. They wrote their facts on jack-o-lanterns.

Third graders worked on organizing data in tally tables using flavors of skittles. Then, they graphed the results vertically and horizontally on bar graphs. It was a tasty math lab treat.
