Making a Difference

7th graders worked in pairs and small groups to research issuesregarding the destruction of tropical rain forests in Latin America.  The topics include:  How is rubber made?  What happens to rain forests lands once they are cleared? Which native groups are threatened by the destruction of the rain forests? What medicines are derived from plants of the rain forests?  They created powerpoints to explore their topics.  Enjoy!

A Journey Through Ancient India

The Sixth grade students are currently studying Ancient India.  Read their comments to find out what they have discovered.  Our first subjects are the physical geography of India and its people.  The second part will be about Religions of India.  Students will compare and contrast these religions to Catholism. Our last group of students will explore festivals of India, comparing their holidays and celebrations to those we celebrate.
