The flag was for Veterans day and was on display at the museum for the opening of our new military exhibit. In one photo is our Museum Director, Pam, with one of the class members after they had read their bio for the Veteran's day project.
Ms. Luetticke's class rode in the Chillicothe Christmas Parade in November on the Churchill Truck Lines' Red Rover.

The "green paper" the kids are holding up are actually pictures of tigers they made using marbles instead of paint brushes showing how tigers use their stripes as camo. They also watched a video of tigers I shot in India.
The class also made fossils in October and also "dug" for coprolites in chocolate chip cookies.

March 2016 - Ancient Egypt - students made "Cartouches".
Using the Egyptian hieroglyphic alphabet, the students spelled out their names for door hangers.
They also made pyramids - or in geometry circles - tetrahedrons.

Here are the PIE pics for February, 2016 - Chinese New Year. The class made Dragon kites.

Here are our January 2016 pictures of our project using Pringles' telescopes.
The Pringles' cans were donated by Hy-Vee.
