Last Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving we all played Turkey Bingo at the High School. If you got a bingo you had to gobble and wobble your way up to pick a prize! There were many prizes to choose from and we also had a full Thanksgiving meal for our coverall bingo winner!

Students in Mrs. K's class are building a sculpture that represents an artist or scientist they are researching. They are learning about the three stages of sculpture: armature, flesh out, and embellish. Armature is to a sculpture as bones are to the body. Students are doing the body with an armature of wire and a dish soap bottle. Flesh out is to give the sculpture substance. Embellishments are specific details added to the sculpture by the artist. Students will flesh out and embellish the body of their sculpture. Students are being so creative and the sculptures are looking awesome!

Students  in the Woodland Critters class participated in a Thanksgiving themed activity- The Mayflower Challenge! Students were instructed to build a boat with paper plates and foil to hold as many "pilgrims" as possible. Students used problem solving skills and each designed a unique boat with hopes that it would float while holding some wooden marbles without sinking. Students put their finished boats in a tub of water to test their designs! The students absolutely loved this activity and made some impressive ships! Students learned a lot of how to proportion weight for balance and problem solving skills, getting creative and making adjustments if needed if their boat did not perform as expected the first time.  What a fun activity for students right before the Thanksgiving holiday!
