Below is the link for the sidewalk survey created by the seventh grade students at St. Joe’s. Please take the survey before April 29, 2018. We will interpret the results and create visuals to display them in order to help the city of Amherst apply for a “Get to School Safe” Grant that would put more sidewalks in our community!
Our seventh grade class recently learned how to obtain reliable information that accurately represents the population in question. We are going to apply this knowledge during our next problem-based learning project. In the future, our school is going to help apply for a “Safe Way to School” grant for the neighborhoods of Amherst. Part of the application process is surveying the public to determine the need/support of the things this grant would supply. We began by drafting a survey, and determining how we would make it available to the public so as to receive the largest amount of responses possible, making our sample size truly representative of the population of Amherst.
The sixth grade spent some time creating a flip chart to help them learn divisibility rules, without having to do long division. Having these charts has assisted the class in determining if numbers are prime or composite. This skill is essential when finding the prime factorization of numbers!
This week, the eighth grade learned about events that lead to the American Revolution. One of the main events was the Boston Massacre. The students analyzed different primary sources including newspaper articles and images and noted differences in which group was portrayed as the aggressor. We discovered the images and texts created right after the incident were used as propaganda to persuade colonists to join a certain side of the Revolution!
