Monarchs Race Towards Promontory
To learn about the history of the Transcontinental Railroad, our 7th grade students competed as the Union Pacific railroad company and the Central Pacific railroad company. Groups were given trivia questions about the construction of the railroad and asked to work as a team with research materials to find the answers. As the girls got questions correct, they received Legos to begin building their own railroad tracks in class. Teams were asked to build tracks from east to west (Union Pacific) or west to east (Central Pacific), meeting at an in the middle, which symbolized the completion ceremony at Promontory, Utah. They even used a yellow Lego to connect their tracks, just like the gold spike used to finalize the last of the railroad tracks at Promontory!
Snack time with ... Snails!
Our 2nd grade class is full of young malacologists who simply cannot get enough knowledge and experience with snails! Luckily for them, their science curriculum focuses on these delightful creatures, along with insects, reptiles, and amphibians. These four Monarchs spent some of their break time this rainy week hunting for snails to add to their class collection, and they know just the right spots on campus to find a new small friend or two!
