What a fun/exciting/busy week! The AP students welcomed CMS and OakHaven 6th year students into their new environment at the GTC on Tuesday and Thursday, and the entire upper elementary visited the Land Campus today to participate in a plant and tree identification scavenger hunt. On Wednesday, the AP students canned over 80 jars of apple butter and made over 100 buttons for the CMS Pink Tower Campaign. We modeled exponential growth with m&ms and skittles. We discussed the elements of a piece of horror fiction through Roald Dahl’s Royal Jelly and A.A. Jacobs’ The Monkey’s Paw. We wrote stories, developed characters through physical characteristics, and studied the use of the transition word ‘however’. The class finished Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma and decided on their occupations group project for the T1 Presentation Day. Next week, we switch back into our humanities studies as we begin to prepare for individual and group research projects. Have a great weekend!
