Something's Growing in Mrs. Hughes' Class
5th grade students in Mrs. Hughes' science class are watching their seeds germinate and using scientific observation skills to record the daily changes. From wrinkled peas to fat, fuzzy white roots--the students have been having fun comparing their projects. They each planted a variety of 12 seeds, and talked about germination, roots, root-hairs, seed coverings, leaves, stems, and nutrients. They will be taking the seedlings home in a couple weeks in dirt to get a head start on their summer gardens

Music Composer Project
The 6th grade students have recently completed composer projects in Mrs. Hansmann's music class. Ainsley V. (center), did her project on Carole King. She designed her own project idea, a talk show, and with the help of some friends (Allison C., Danielle C., Ellee F., and Lilyanna W.), presented her project to the class. She told the audience some facts about Carole King, and also sang "I Feel the Earth Move". Fabulous job, Ainsley (and friends!)
