Work hard, play hard

After a great morning showing their animal habitat work to the Pre K's, K-1's headed out for some fun in the snow.
In social studies 6th and 7th graders are discussing, "How did Greek culture and ideas survive so long?"
In science they are summarizing and analyzing current events articles like: "Steroids, Take One for the Team" from the LA Times; "The Day the Dinosaurs Died" from Weather Wise; " Obesity Goes Global - Blame Prosperity, Bad Habits and Fast Food" from the Orlando Sentinel. They are making power point presentations from research they have done on different sources of energy and comparing and debating the relative merits of each.
Eighth graders have just finished essays analyzing Supreme Court cases.
Then a rousing game of floor-pong!
