Exploring the Seasons

Attributions: 

This week the 6th grade students learned how and why we have seasons. Using an ohm meter, they measured the amount of heat reaching different parts of the earth at different points in its' revolution around the sun. They were able to see that the northern and southern hemispheres receive different amounts of heat, and therefore have opposite seasons. 

Team Building and Problem Solving

Attributions: 

Last week US Synthetic sent several of their employees to Westside for the morning to work with 6th graders on problem solving. The students worked together in teams to build towers out of notecards over three successive tries, learning in between about what it means to think, plan, revise, and not give up.
