6th grade Hot Air Balloons

Submitted by amy.darrington on Thu, 11/02/2017 - 11:18

It's a bird!  It's a plane!  It's actually a hot air balloon created by the Rees Elementary 6th graders.  Our 6th graders wrapped up learning about molecules, density, and heat by designing and launching hot air balloons.  It was a wonderful way to solidify key ideas and see scientific principles in action!  Not only did the 6th graders enjoy it, but other students were amazed to see the hot air balloons out on the playground and floating by their classroom windows.

It’s All GREEK to Me!

By Jaynee Tanner

    Here ye! Here ye!  The Gods of Olympus are pleased!  For the past few weeks we’ve been learning about the Ancient Greece and their beliefs.  Did you know they were polytheistic?  They believed in many gods!  We’ve also been doing projects, reading books, and even playing games to learn about this fascinating culture.
