Age of Exploration: Investigating the Spice Trade

We have been talking about how the spice trade was a major cause for the Age of Exploration, and why spices were so valued. So which spice would students want to trade for? Today, they sniff-tested 12 spices to see what they liked and disliked, and then attempted to identify each spice. There were some fun surprises along the way – be sure to ask your son or daughter about their favorites!

Short story diagramming!

Students learned the components of the short story, and then worked in groups to choose the climax (point of change) for the short stories read in class. They did a great job discussing, choosing, and supporting those choices with facts from the stories!

Exhibition 2 is Coming!!

When? March 14th, 6-8 pm.

Science project description:

In science students will design a Rube Goldberg machine that will perform a task of their own choosing. Their machine will be comprised of at least 5 simple machines, one from each type: inclined plane, lever, screw, wheel and axle, wedge, pulley, and will be required to fit inside a cardboard box. Students will outline the engineering design process and brainstorm several designs to achieve their goal. They will further develop their design, draw a detailed diagram with each of the simple machines labelled, and will list the materials they plan to use. As they build their machines they will keep a daily journal outlining their successes and challenges. Finally, students will reflect on how well their machines meet their purpose, challenges they faced throughout the design and build process, and how their machines could be improved.
