From the Principal's Desk

Friday, August 29, 2014

8th grade Social Studies is off and running with student projects. Students have created maps of the United States with different land forms and each state in the correct location. 8th grade is the first year students learn the actual location of each state on a U.S. map. They have really taken hold of their learning and created some outstanding projects. Many students have spent hours working on this project and it shows! Check out John Baker and his edible cake map - YUM!
  

7th grade science is working on developing your next generation of engineers. Students were given a challenge to build a box out of card stock that will hold a specific volume (1000 cm3). In groups, they used the volume given to them to determine the best possible box size that a child could use to store small toys.


Thanks for checking in,
Amy Sims, WMS Principal
