Students Use Sweet Treats to Help with Science Lesson
Valentine’s Day can’t go on without tasty treats! So why not include this with the love of learning science? On February 14th, 6th grade students were given several different food items representing the various organelles or cell structures found in plant and animal cells to construct an edible cell model.
This activity helped them learn more about the different parts of a cell and their functions. Cells are the fundamental unit of life. All living things are composed of cells. Different body tissues and organs are made of different kinds of cells. The ways cells function are similar in all living organisms. We don’t think you can ever go wrong when you use food to demonstrate your classroom lesson!

Hidden Treasures Discovered at CHS!
The search for hidden treasure is on at CHS! Students have been studying vectors, which represent both a direction and magnitude (number) in Mrs. Ruth Russell’s physics class. To get some experience both creating and reading vectors, students made maps. The students worked in groups and made maps that showed the vectors of how they should move around the school to find the treasure. They then switched maps and followed another group’s vectors to find a treasure. We’re told all of the students were successful in finding the hidden treasures – which included goodies like doughnuts and candy!
