Settlement of Ohio In Mrs. Meyer and my social studies classes we have been working on the settlement of Ohio. We included the creation of artifacts in class where the students made log cabins with supplies, covered wagons, and even one room school houses. I attached a few pictures from Mrs. Ogborn's class where Ms. Roger's students worked hard to create some great artifacts as well!
Rocks, Soil and Minerals Third graders at Amanda-Clearcreek Elementary have been busy learning about rocks, soil and minerals in their science classes. The students were able to participate in a hands-on presentation from Nikki Drake and Amy Boyer from the Fairfield Soil and Water Conservation District. The students wrapped up their unit by creating edible soil layers. Yum! "Science is fun!" is the theme in Mrs. Bennett's science classes.

Dress Like Mark Garrett Students and staff all dressed like Mark Garrett, 5th grade teacher, in honor of his birthday.
Mad Hatter's Tea Party The fourth grade students read the book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with a focus on the characters and setting. Not only did we get to read the novel, we were able to watch two different versions of the story and discuss the similarities and differences between the book and movies. Mrs. Moyer and Mrs. Morgan's homeroom completed projects based on their favorite character and setting. Their work was fantastic! We also had a "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" to celebrate this wonderful classic. Parents were invited to join us and students were encouraged to dress up as their favorite character. The students brought in snacks to share as they presented their projects. We had a great day and the kids really enjoyed themselves!
