Recently in our Middle School, Mr. Murphy’s 8th Grade Science Class did a hands-on lab. The students used a Flowing Water Model (our stream tables) to gather evidence about the cause of a large channel on Mars. Students created and operated models that show how the hydrosphere and geosphere interact on a rocky planet. Students manipulated the elevation of the liquid water's source to see how it interacted with two different substrates; sand and gravel. Students then made observations of the landforms left behind by the flowing water. When all was done, students drew conclusions to help support their scientific argument about what caused the channel formation on Mars. “This hands-on, discovery-based lab allowed students to work together as members of a team to test the impacts of flowing water on the geosphere of a rocky planet through the use of several models,” said Mr. Murphy. “Students realize the importance of models in the scientific inquiry process.” ...

Today our 468/486 Building participated in pod activities that focused on team building! The building was split into 5 Pods (red, yellow, green, blue, and purple). Students came dressed down in their pod color and engaged in activities with other students and teachers in their pods.
