WHAT'S HAPPENING AT STONE
Mrs. Hetu’s Class
Mrs. Hetu's science classes are exploring Physical Science. Sixth grade has been exploring chemical and physical reactions and has recently created a chemical reaction by modeling "elephant toothpaste." We will be building a race car, powered by baking soda and vinegar in the next few weeks. Seventh graders are exploring the similarities between magnetism and static electricity, whereas eighth graders are delving into the basic building blocks of matter (atoms). Students are working hard and have a great focus!
It's been an exciting beginning of the year in our classroom. Thanks to Donors.org we received awesome materials on the Solar System as well as supplementary math and science books. The students have loved exploring the unknown and learning as much as they can about each planet!
Ms. MacDonald’s Class
There is lots going on in Social Studies for grades 3-5. In the 3/4 classroom we are learning about the populations that make up our state of Massachusetts. In the 4/5 classroom we are learning about Vikings and explorers that came to America. We will be taking a few days to learn about and understand the importance of voting and the election since it's almost time to vote! We are going to have a class vote for president after we wrap up the election unit.
Mrs. Castanho’s Class
The sixth/seventh class applied the 5 themes of geography to a location they selected. Places include Los Angeles, New York, and Puerto Rico. (I can include pictures in the morning of a completed project.) Seventh grade students are learning about early humans and their migration around the world; and eighth graders are learning about the beginning of Islam and the contributions of Islamic scholars.
