Our youngest ISK students have been investigating “Space:” What is it? Where is it? What is in it and why are we in it? These questions have inspired the children to make models of our solar system, experiment with representations of day and night and learn about astronauts and their favorite planets. A trip to the planetarium was enjoyed by all!
On October 24th, 2016 approximately 300 people attended the Grand Opening of the New Annex Celebration.
On Friday, January 13, 2017, the 6th Grade at ISK had their Egyptian Open Tomb Event. This event included a presentation of projects that involved learning all steps of proper research with note taking, paraphrasing, editing, and revision. Students made elaborate projects and dressed authentically. About 200 visitors came through the tomb with flashlights and were thrilled to enjoy such a wonderful interactive learning experience! A special thanks to Mrs. Amy Caldwell for all her hard work with this event!
ISK’s Early Years students have been celebrating the December holidays in a variety of ways. From building their own gingerbread house to singing songs about Santa, they have been super busy getting ready to celebrate. The children have been learning how their classmates celebrate through their project called “The Twelve Days of Christmas:” parents come into the classroom to present the food, festivities and folklore of their home countries The Early Years students wish everyone Happy Holidays!
ISK’s 8th grade physical science students have been studying simple machines such as pulleys, inclined planes and levers. The class was given the task to design and construct a Rube Goldberg device. In just 4 class periods plus several additional hours over lunch and recess, they built this amazing machine that spanned 2 classrooms and contained 20 simple machines. The theme was to lead the duck to water. Each pair of students were responsible for designing two machines but the difficult part was to connect each section together so there was one complete machine. They worked well together and it took a lot of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity to pull this off! A special thanks to Ms. Cindy Powell for putting this all together!
