Students Create History Board Games
Students in Mr. Donegan’s 9th grade Modern World History Class recently learned about the Great Depression. Mr. Donegan explained that learning about the Depression Era helps students to understand how difficult life was during that time. He stated, “Ultimately, the students learn how people became desperate and lost faith in democracy, which led to a rise in dictatorships across Europe and eventually World War II.”
During this unit, students created a board game about their knowledge of the Great Depression for their peers to play during class. “They seemed to enjoy being creative during the construction of the game, but they also enjoyed playing their peers’ games,” said Mr. Donegan. He concluded that the students did a very good job being creative and making their games unique!
Using Microscopes in 6th Grade Science
Students in Mrs. Welker’s 6th grade Science class are currently learning about cell theory and cell organelles. Mrs. Welker explained, “Students are learning about cell cycle and how illnesses can be transmitted from place to place. Students will soon be using microscopes again for a lab to practice identifying plant and animal cells.”
Students started out learning about microscopes and the different power of lenses. After learning the parts of the microscope, they practiced using different lens powers by locating a single letter of print that was mounted on a slide. Students were able to use their iPads to take pictures showing what they saw at each lens power. Then, students dove into all the parts of the cell, looking at the differences between animal and plant cells. Students even learned the “cell rap” as a fun way to learn the organelles. Mrs. Welker stated, “We have also discussed the scientific strides made in cell regeneration and its application in medicine today. Next, we compared healthy versus unhealthy cell growth and how cancers can grow in the body, also looking at what can cause these cancers to grow.”
Mrs. Welker concluded, “Students love working with the microscopes! They also like the cell rap as a way to remember the organelles and how they function!”
CBI Cooking Challenge
Several of our Rangers recently participated in a cooking challenge as part of their program at CBI. Our very own Emily Bires played an integral role in helping these students learn their way around the kitchen. Check out some of the highlights below.
