Perseverance Pays!

After all the work of collecting, smashing, hauling soda cans, the Sixth Grade Sagacious Scholars were able to see their work come to fruition today as we built and placed the soccer goals for the K - 3rd grade playground. Scholars were thrilled with how big they are and hope that the younger kids will enjoy using them starting Wednesday. :)

As for other academics, we have begun our study of To Kill a Mockingbird, and are into our Industrial Revolution section of History. We will be having a monopoly tournament next week as we study Carnegie and the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Probably Wednesday scholars will bring in their games and we'll learn the REAL background to the game of Monopoly. We are into a two week study of the ocean floor and plate tectonics and then will move into Newton's laws and physics to prepare for our Lagoon project. Six weeks hardly seems long enough to cram in all we have left to conquer....but we WILL! :)
