EEM - Last week, students thought the popsicle bridge challenge was impossible. The goal was to build a bridge to hold at least 20 pounds, with up to 200 popsicle sticks and glue. Four of the seven bridges built held 74 pounds. AMAZING work that surpassed our expectations!
EEM - The Supreme Court held a mock trial at EEM! Students observed as justices, provided testimony, and argued their own opinions on a fictional case focusing on civil liberties as designated in the US Constitution! They said being on the Supreme Court is hard work!!
EEM - Is that Mrs. Lewis or Uncle Sam? Yesterday, students had fun learning from Uncle Sam as a part of Independence Week at EEM Smore's Learning Camp!
Last week S'Mores learners competed to build the tallest tower that could hold the most weight with only 50 index cards and a meter of masking tape. The tallest tower (constructed by Rogue Brangan, Emily Young, and Rebecca Solano) came in at 31 cm holding 1,100 g. The strongest tower (constructed by Bretallica Leach [not pictured], Cooper Barnes, and Noah Atwood) came in at 23 cm holding 10,828.6 g. Way to go!
EEM - S'Mores learners applied their knowledge of ecosystems and economics to fish in the "commons" competing against other groups to "catch" the most fish. They then calculated their credits, debits, and overall balance for each year, then graphed their data. The goal was to earn the most money without wiping out their fish populations. Congratulations to our winners: Emily Young (left), Rebecca Solano (middle), and Rogue Brangan (right)!

Mrs. Teague's 7th-grade science classes built models of common compounds using fruit loops. Students selected different colors to represent different elements, making sure the elements were bonded in the correct locations.
Mrs. Teague's 7th grade science classes finished the year with a unit on Chemical Reactions. Their last lab of the year was 5 mini experiments in which they made observations to determine if the experiment was an example of a physical or chemical reaction. They also measured the initial mass and final mass to see the Law of Conservation of Mass in action!
