- The 100 Mile Club is steam rolling! The 100 Mile Club is a program offering the challenge to run/walk/jog 100 miles over the course of a school year. Click here for more information. Most students still need to submit $10 for full participation in the program which includes a T-shirt at the 25-mile mark. We are completing daily runs in the neighborhood and would love parent volunteers who can help monitor students during recess (12:30 - 1pm). Please email Mr. Logan if you can help.
Students will read a paired set of articles of the design process. The articles will be used to assess essential skills like summarizing, using text evidence, and making inferences. These articles will also help inform our shift from sustainable economics to creating our own sustainable snack in EfS.
Students will submit finished realistic narratives this week after we work on creating varied sentence structures as well as editing for vivid descriptions. Also this week, we will write an on-demand information essay using the two articles from the reading work.
We're wrapping up our study of the materials life cycle of products next week and will use what we've learned about sustainability to Invent the Future of Snacks. Our next unit will be the focus of demonstration night next month and is an exciting exploration of how we define good food with sustainability in mind.
