Christ in Action

Classroom News

  • Ms. Elton’s class went to the Savannah Children’s Museum this week and had a BLAST!!!

  • First grade had a blast at the University of Georgia Aquarium on Skidaway Island. Students saw all the animals in the saltwater aquariums but their favorite part was the touch tank! They were able to hold whelks, hermit crabs, and the large horseshoe crab! First graders love learning about all the sea animals around them!

  • Second grade went on a field trip to the Tybee Marine Science Center to explore ocean life. They were able to walk the beach, sift the sand for animals, and explore the touch tank!

  • Mrs. Wigand’s class went on a Geometry Scavenger Hunt to find right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles, rays, line segments, parallel lines, intersecting lines, and perpendicular lines. They were excited and surprised to find so many.

  • In honor of poetry month, Miss Crapse’s third grade class discussed poetry using the book “Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin!” Students then wrote and illustrated their own poems.

  • Mrs. Chambers, Fifth Grade’s Writing teacher, and Mrs. Brown, Fifth Grade’s Science teacher, collaborated on a Periodic Element Poetry project!  Students researched their element and wrote a “What Am I?” poem describing it. Fifth Grade would love to challenge the Upper School Chemistry students to drop by and try to guess the element!

  • Mrs. Caruthers had her Fourth Grade students make an “ABCs of the Revolutionary War” poster. Students were assigned a letter, like “R” for Betsy Ross.  Their colorful work is on display in the Building 6 hallway.

  • Fourth grade science students in Mrs. Ivey’s class enjoyed exploring various temperatures in the Pecan Grove of our beautiful campus. Students worked in pairs to read and record the temperatures in the sun and in the shade using the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. Students quickly saw a significant temperature difference in the two areas and used reasoning skills to explain the differences.
