Effect of Slavery on the Civil War

Mrs. Herrmann’s Class has been learning about slavery and it’s effect on the Civil War. We learned about the cotton gin and how that invention actually required more slaves to pick cotton. Her students each had a cotton boll (yes, that’s how it’s spelled) and they were painstakingly ginning the cotton bolls by hand. It was quite a chore!

Some of our Wild Cats filling up the Wild Cat board.

When students earn 10 Wild Cat Cash coupons, they can write their name on the board and get an ice cream party with Mrs. Pruitt, or get a token for the prize tower. The cash is given for a plethora of positive actions. It means a lot to students to have their name on one or more times.

4th grade walked to the park and experienced different activities from the pioneers. They learned how to play stick pull, make a doll, sew on a button, weave, tall tales how to hammer in a nail, and how to make a buzz saw. Then they walked back to the school to learn how to line dance and make ice cream.

Balloon STEM

Mrs. Liechty's first grade class did some experiments with balloons! We did the spinning penny experiment, the bending water experiment, and inflating a balloon with baking soda and vinegar.  Then we conducted a STEM project, in, groups, using only arn, a straw, a balloon, and a piece of take. The object was to get the balloon from one side of the room to the other only using those items. First, they planned what they were going to try. Then, they executed their plan. It was so much fun!

Launching Army Men (STEM Project)

Mrs. Herrmann’s class did a STEM activity where the students made launchers to launch their army men. The goal was to see which one could travel the farthest. They had to do different trials and change their designs to get it the best it could be. Then we launched them and measured outside.

Springville Library Visit for Teens

Westside's 6th graders had the opportunity to walk to the Springville library for a tour of the teen library. They were shown all of the great teen activities available during the summer. After the library tour they went across the street to the park and ate lunch. It was beautiful weather and they enjoyed the day. Thank you Springville Library for having us and being so welcoming!
