Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Lower School News: September 18 – September 22, 2017

Science News

First grade observed Leaves, Flowers, Roots, and Stems.  We measured fern fronds and compared them with other leaves. We looked at live flowers and artificial flowers  and observed the difference between living and non living things.

 

 

Second graders dissected tomatoes to observe the seeds inside the fruit.  We had examples of cherry tomato plants and identified the yellow blossoms that will become the fruit. We identified leaves and stems.

 

Third graders observed the lab results they began last week.  We noted after seven days our pea seeds had germinated and the roots measured 2 inches. We discussed what was needed for our seeds to sprout.

 

 

2nd Grade

Ms. Phillips’ class had fun writing friendly letters to the students in Mrs. Clemments’ class.

 

3rd Grade

Third grade students are estimating differences by practicing board problems, sharing their math steps and participating in discussion with their classmates.

 

 

Music News

This month in music we are discovering the many talents of our Composer of the Month, Johann Strauss II.

Strauss wrote so many waltzes he was known as the “Waltz King”! Students had a fun time learning how to waltz!
