MS STEM Class Gives Students Hands-On Lessons

Sixth-grade teacher Shaun Davis shows students how to dissect a frog to look at the organs inside.

Carefully following detailed instructions sixth-grade middle school students got a hands-on lesson they won't soon forget. They were learning about organs, what they look like and how they function. Instead of simply reading about it or even seeing pictures, students were able to see actual organs by looking at the insides of frogs.

Math Made Yummy!

Using weights and calculations students had to accurately determine how many pieces of candy and gum were in each bag.

TK 8th-grade math teachers used Jolly Ranchers and gum for a sweet end-of-unit lesson. Students were given bags filled with 20 total pieces of Jolly Ranchers and gum. But each bag contained a different combination of gum and candy. The task was to develop a set of equations, work the math and accurately come up with the number of candy pieces and the number of pieces of gum in their individual bags. Students who correctly calculated the numbers were able to eat their math rewards! Mrs. Siekman, Ms. Arguello and Mr. Cole each had a pre-determined amount of items in each bag with answers recorded on a spreadsheet to easily check the student answers. What a SWEET way to teach math!
