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
