NHS Drama and Choral Departments To Host Murder-Mystery Dinner Theater!

Murder-Mystery

Northwood HS Drama and Choral Departments will be hosting a Murder-Mystery Dinner Theater on Saturday, November 4th at 6pm in the school’s cafeteria. What is a Murder-Mystery Dinner Theater? Think of a giant game of CLUE, but the audience is directly involved in the problem solving to find out who the murderer really is.  The main characters of the theater will be professional actors from The Magical Mystery Theater Company from Michigan.

The story is “A Dance with Death” (a 1950’s Sock Hop that’s gone sour) rated PG-13. This 1950’s prom is a doo wop disaster! When a death on the dance floor makes this prom night a party foul, it is up to you to figure out “whodunit” and get this dance back on track. Trade clues with your guests, gather information about the crime, and reveal the one that made the dance go sour. This night of laughter and dancing is now too heavy to razz anyone’s berries, so it’s up to you to find the murderer!

Word from the bird is this is one show you will not want to miss. This night is shootin’ to be swell despite the disaster. Ladies and Gents feel free to dress in costume for the Sock Hop, or come as you are! Get ready to put on your thinking caps; you’ll need your wits about you to solve this crime!

This event is sure to be a night of fun, laughter, and great food. The food will be catered by Emily Bires of Northwood. Tickets are available by contacting Annette Slater at aslater@northwoodschools.org or by calling 419-691-3888 ext.2159. Advanced tickets are only $20 including dinner. Tickets at the door will be $25. Profits from the dinner theater will go towards the choir’s trip to Chicago and the Drama department’s spring production!

Physics Students Study Constant Velocity with Buggies

IMG_1485

Mr. Kohring’s Physics students have been focused on objects moving with a constant velocity. Students were asked to represent the motion of an object moving at a constant velocity in the following ways: via a written description, a position vs. time graph, a velocity vs. time graph, a motion map, and a mathematical model (or equation). With these representations, students were able to make predictions and solve complex problems.

Mr. Kohring stated that students enjoyed working with the buggies  to collect data and report information on their motion. As a wrap-up to the unit, students were asked to collect information on the motion of a fast moving buggy along with a slower moving tank. With this information, students were asked to predict an exact position in which the two vehicles would collide when starting from given positions. Different prediction methods were used to accomplish this. Mr. Kohring concluded, “The students did great with this as all had predictions close to where they actually met!”

 

2nd Graders Investigate Service Dogs

Mrs. Reiter’s second grade language arts students are working on their research skills  Mrs. Reiter explained that students are focusing on the author’s purpose for writing a story, finding evidence to support, and analyzing and evaluating details to decide which are important to the story. The students will then take their facts and turn it into a piece of writing with a topic sentence, details, and a closing sentence!

IMG_2588Students have been researching and collecting facts on different breeds of dogs as well as how dogs are used for individuals who have an illness or disability. Mrs. Reiter explained, “We have read nonfiction stories about dogs that were heroes and we have read about different types of service therapy dogs provide people.” When asked what students have enjoyed most about this unit, Mrs. Reiter stated that students have really enjoyed looking at the different ways that therapy dogs are used to help people through their nonfiction books and informative videos!
