Third Graders Experience Hands On Science Outdoors

After a long, wet winter, we’re finally experiencing some beautiful Oregon spring weather. Third grade recently took advantage of this and did some hands-on learning outside. In this picture, they are testing which of the four terrestrial planets’ orbital paths would take the longest and the shortest amount of time to walk around. They enjoyed making and testing their hypotheses.

7th Grade Science

Today in 7th grade science, the students had the opportunity to dissect crayfish. This fun and engaging lesson is just one of a series of dissections the 7th graders take part in each year. They start with crayfish and other small creatures, working their way up to fetal pigs. The 7th grade students eagerly await this unit each year!
