5th and 6th Grade Projects

5th graders have been studying the human body with Cindy Cartwright, and in particular, epidermis. This week they measured the total inches of skin on a second 5th grader, Alex, for Epidermis Wrap #2. Remarkably, their measurements on two different 5th graders only came out 8 square inches different from one another. 5th and 6th graders today participated in a Battle of the Books with teachers Janet Webster and Christina Davis. The battle was a trivia contest based on a list of ten books (at varying levels of difficulty) they could read. Finally, in observance of Earth Day, students wrote down ideas on ways they could take action in their own lives to help the planet. They are well on their way to becoming terrific world citizens!
