Brainiacs

Among their lesson they discovered differences between the left and right hemispheres and the many functions of the lobes. Click here to view slideshow.

Outdoor Leadership Lab
The fifth grade STRETCH students participated in the culminating activity for their leadership unit, the Outdoor Leadership Lab on Thursday, Nov. 13. Students were challenged with various problems to solve to encourage the development of their leadership skills. After facing the different challenges, the students who took a leadership role were identified by name and the skills they used to help guide the group. The day ended with a reflective letter writing project. The students were asked to write a letter to themselves that explained the things they learned during the day about leadership. They were also asked to think about how they would use those skills in the future and write about what they think they will be doing in the future and how the leadership skills they learned at the lab might be used.

STRETCH Caveman Project Slideshows
The 5th grade STRETCH students are studying a unit about Art & Ancient Civilizations.  They learned about the Lascaux Cave in France and then made "primitive" artwork to adorn the walls.  In activities pictured here they are incorporating modern "symbols" called Zentangle onto bats and spiders to help decorate the inside of the cave they built together.  To see the slideshows, click here.
