The Ancient Egyptian pyramids are one of the most magnificent man-made structures created throughout history. The Egyptians began building pyramids during the beginning of the Old Kingdom, around 4,500 years ago. No building plans were discovered, so it is still a mystery on how the pyramids were built.
In this STEM challenge, students must design either a freestanding square or rectangular pyramid. The goal of the challenge is to design the tallest pyramid in the shortest amount of time. 

 

8 th Graders participated in an activity which enabled them to understand the life of a Civil War soldier. Marching and fighting drill was part of the daily routine for the Civil War soldier. Infantry soldiers drilled as squads and in company formations.  The loading and firing of muskets is a very detailed and complicated action requiring precise movement following a specific pattern.

After marching, drilling and loading muskets, the students discovered what the soldiers ate. 

Hardtack for Union soldiers

Johnnycakes for Confederate soldiers

Apples and raisins for both sides.

 

 

7TH GRADERS HELD A MOCK TRIAL TO DECIDE IF COLUMBUS WAS A HERO OR VILLIAN.
