A is for...
The three and four year olds of Saint Joseph School celebrated the month of September and the letter “A” with… Apples of course! They tasted, voted, graphed, stamped, painted, counted, cut, and baked with apples. They read, “wrote,” and sang about apples. They learned about apple tree life cycles, apple and tree parts, apple growing, and different things that are made from apples. We are all grateful that God gave us apple trees right here on our part of the Earth.

Grade 5 Firefly Circuits
Grade 5 students learned that elements can be classified by their different properties. Metals and nonmetals are just one way of grouping them. In this experiment, students first hypothesized which objects were metals or nonmetals and then made firefly circuits to test their hypotheses. If their fireflies lit up, the objects were metal. Students also learned about series circuits when they connected all their fireflies together and made them light simultaneously. Lastly, they used their knowledge to search the classroom to find objects that would light their fireflies and then proceeded light them up.

Chemical Reactions, Inertia, and Sound Energy
Fifth grade students were busy this past winter learning about chemical reactions, inertia, and sound energy. They made play dough to learn about chemical reactions. The fun continued when students went into creative mode and made sculptures. Inertia became exciting when students tried to pull an index card stacked with cubes from the top of an open jar. Next, they applied their knowledge of sound energy by creating their own musical instruments and demonstrating high and low pitches. Check out their video. Who thought science could be so exciting?
