Biology students have been learning about extinction, biodiversity in our biosphere, and how we have impacted both. They completed a solution to the pollution lab where students had to develop a plan to remove the oil from the water while also saving the aquatic organisms in their tub.

Great Depression Food Who would have thought that juniors would eat up all the kielbasa, cabbage, and potatoes dish made by Jonathan Zoromski for his first semester-end project?  The juniors for this unit not only made this but some made puppy chow, macaroni, and cheese, a sweet drink that is similar to orange Julius as well as pieces of bread, cookies, and muffins-the food disappeared as fast as it was handed out.  Students had their choice of how to demonstrate knowledge from the first semester and quite a few choose to make food because many of the recipes are some that they grew up with, not realizing that they connected to a time period where people were being frugal as they could be.

Lewis & Clark Mapping Activity On a snowy, cold, and windy day the sophomores in Ms. Stange’s United States History I classes, hours 3rd and 8th went outside for a mapping activity. The students were to draw the borders of the school, the buildings, roads, count the trees, and record any wildlife sightings. They were given their instructions the prior week and chose to split into girls’ and boys’ groups. Just like Lewis & Clark, they were told to prepare for the weather outside and the unknown that could come with Wisconsin winter, and the pictures will show the conditions that they both went outside to do the activity. The students had fun even though it was cold and snowy because they worked as teams to “attack” the problem presented to them. It was a fun activity with laughter, marking off measurements as well as a great way to show how Lewis & Clark with the Corps of Discovery carried out President Jefferson’s directive of mapping the Louisiana Purchase Territory.
