Trout Dissection

Fifth graders kicked off our Monday morning with a trout dissection! Students worked in groups to identify the external and internal anatomy of the trout. Everyone’s favorite part is squeezing the sphere-shaped lens out of the eye!

First Grade Butterfly Release

Today the first grade class released 18 butterflies. The class has watched their butterflies metamorphosize from caterpillars. Mrs. Marie Nelson and Mrs. Melissa Mracek from our county extension office have visited with us over the past few weeks. They taught us many things about the life cycle of the butterfly and the parts of a butterfly. If you see any painted lady butterflies flying around town, they might be ours!

Trout In The Classroom Field Trip

Fifth graders traveled to Chadron State Park for their Trout in the Classroom field trip. We started off the cool, wet day with some fishing in the pond. We got our hands dirty baiting our hooks and caught several bluegill and a couple smallmouth bass. We even had one student catch his very first fish ever! Next we released our trout. We received these trout eggs in January from Nebraska Game and Parks, and raised them in our classroom fish tank. Students were a little sad to say goodbye. Finally we went on the hunt for aquatic macroinvertebrates aka water bugs. Macroinvertebrates are helpful in determining water quality. The damselfly nymphs and dragonfly nymphs are indicators of potentially good water quality.

Second Grade Camp-In

Second grade had “Camp Learn A Lot” this week. We brought in tents, sleeping bags, flashlights and a campfire! We read so many camping books under the “stars”, learned and wrote about how to eat a worm, wrote and shared spooky campfire stories, read maps and made maps, constellations, bees and how they make honey, and we had a couple special readers come to camp! Turns out, learning can be fun!

5th Grade Science

Fifth graders have been busy learning about molecules! We have been exploring what causes different types of molecules to dissolve. To further understand, we first investigated the attraction between molecules of the same kind. We placed drops of water on a penny then did the same with oil to see which liquid would gather the most drops. We observed that water molecules held together better than oil molecules.

Next, we tested different emulsifiers to see which would keep two liquids, water and oil, from separating to create a stable mixture. After testing flour, cornstarch, and lecithin, we found that lecithin is the best emulsifier to keep oil and water mixed.

Field Trip

Kindergarten and 1st graders took a trip to Chadron State College to visit the Mari Sandoz center. They have a very interactive Sun, Moon and Star exhibit that we enjoyed. We were also able to hike to the labyrinth.

St. Patrick’s Day Activities

The 6th grade careers and tech class has been busy planning and creating rotation stations for the first grade class.  The 6th graders led the 1st graders through a series of activities including a scavenger hunt, minute to win it challenges, stories, and much more!  The celebration concluded with homemade cupcakes made by the 6th grade class.
