Who knew learning could actually be fun? As we venture in to the concept of project-based learning and creative collaboration, Team 2 has already gotten a jump on what it's all about! On Friday, September 23, 2011 students in Team 2 were given baskets of items they could use to build a "Table Top Olympic Game." They were only allowed to use the items in their own baskets, and they could not train. After they created their games, they had to determine how to score their games. When the games were completed, groups traveled to each station to play the array of games. The students in 5th grade did a model comparison today of our solar system. In other Team 2 news, on Tuesday, September 27 the students in 5th grade did a model comparison today of our solar system; below the pics of the Olympic games are a few pictures of the day's events.
4th Graders will be attending the Tiffin-Seneca Heritage Festival's "Ohio Heritage School Day" at Hedges Boyer Park on Friday, September 16th. Schools from all over the county will be visiting the Living History Village and participating in hands-on activities, which include a Civil War Encampment, Pioneer Games, and Covered Wagon Life. In class we are doing lessons on Ohio's Heritage as well.
5th - 7th Graders will be traveling to the Miller Conservation Farm on Tuesday, September 20th. Beth Deisch from the Seneca Soil and Water Conservation Districts will be hosting this event. Students will have many opportunities to learn about conservation, preservation, wildlife, and forestry on this day. It will also be a follow-up to soil composition lessons learned in Science class.

Well it is fall. Time for late festivals, shorter days, longer periods of darkness, school routines, leaves changing, oh and end of season BBQs.....yes BBQ.
