    In 7th grade Science class, students explore kinetic and potential energy through roller coaster creation! 
    It's the Mercantilism game in 8th grade American History. Students learn the challenges of developing their countries despite trade limitations and restrictions. What a fun and engaging way for students to learn about trade and mercantilism!  

    6th Grade Social Studies students played a "Hedbanz" review game with geography vocabulary!

    Medical Detectives students learned about the importance of communication in the lab by arranging the steps to make a grilled cheese sandwich … which Mrs. Fritsch then followed :-) They learned that No Communication = Disaster; and Communication = Success!
