Energy and Our Future

Last Friday, student's presented their Energy presentations.  Groups focused on their presentation skills, and learning more about their content.  After the presentation, students enjoyed an activity called Cookie Mining.  Students worked in small groups to mine for chocolate chips.  At the end of the activity they had to reclaim their land.  Here is a short video showing their mining skills.

Culminating Event

Dear Renaissance Families,

We would like to invite you to our next Culminating Event: Energy In Our Future.  Renaissance students have been studying Earth Science and we are finishing the unit with research on natural resources. We have been learning how different resources are used to produce energy and how this impacts the environment. Students will be presenting their research which will be followed by an activity on mining. The presentations will start at 1:30 on Friday, March 25th. We look forward to seeing you at the presentations. You are welcome to stay and join your child for our mining activity if you choose.

Sincerely,

The Renaissance Teachers

The "I AM" wall is finished

This week the Renaissance community finished our "I AM" wall. We had everybody help and participate while putting up the passages. We our very happy with how the wall turned out! The purpose of the wall is to show who you are and express your feelings. Many people opened up and expressed things that others would not know. It was really fun to put up and many enjoyed the experience.

I AM

Recently the Renaissance community has been working on a project called the "I AM wall". We will write something that represents our selves on pieces of paper to be placed on the  I AM wall.  Each Renaissance student is allowed to write 5 or more adjectives. The adjective you write on your piece of paper also can be an emotion or a feeling you're feeling.  In my opinion, I think it is a good idea to express ourselves.  I will post a picture of the finished wall in the future.
