This year we are so happy to bring back excel time on our FLEX days. This past Friday, eighth grade students got to learn about a concept that was outside the eighth grade standards because their MAP scores said they were ready for more! Four students got to learn about finding the area of sectors of circles. The students were amazed that the concept was not totally foreign to them. They realized they already knew how to find the area of a circle, and also how to create equal ratios. They were able to connect that the new concept involved a combination of those skill sets. They excelled (wink, wink) with this new content that was outside their typical eighth grade standards!
In our latest social studies endeavors, the eighth grade class has been studying the events that lead up to the American Revolution. One of the most important events was the Boston Tea Party, an act of civil disobedience that was a response to the tax the British government imposed on tea. Not only did the eighth grade class perform an act of civil disobedience on their own, (protesting school uniforms), they also were challenged with designing a tea crate that would withstand being dumped in the harbor. Their materials were popsicle sticks, yarn, wax paper, a tea bag, and a small amount of tape. Crates were tested in bins full of water. All designs were successful, as the water did not show any signs of the tea escaping. Well done, eighth grade!
Recently, eighth grade has finished up the chapters in our religion book teaching us about the four Marks of the Church. They were challenged to come up with staged scenes to represent each of the Marks of the Church. They were split into two teams and had to brainstorm how they could arrange themselves, use props, and gestures to convey the meaning of the Marks of the Church. Can you tell which is which?!
