Last week was our College and Career Week at Hobble Creek.  Students are  learning more about opportunities for higher education and  future carreer paths and learned the importance of good study skills. Students were given daily trivia questions on the announcements along with BINGO cards to fill in with the answers.  Thank you Mrs. Roundy and the student council for all their hard work last week.

Mrs. Miller's sixth grade class has been learning about Ancient Egypt Civilization.  We learned about pyramids, hieroglyphics, pharaohs,  and the mummification process.  We experimented by “mummifying” apple slices in different solutions to see which one would preserve an apple the best.  We used baking soda, water, vinegar, salt, sugar and no preservative and let them sit in a cupboard for the week.  We found that water and salt preserve the apples best and baking soda preserved them the worst!,

Welcome to the Ancient World!

This term our sixth grade classes have been studying the Ancient Worlds of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Mesopotamia  and China. Today they brought in their final  projects to share with their classes.  Students had the option of dressing up and our sixth grade teachers set a great example! So many amazing projects with lots of time, research and hard work.  Way to go sixth grade!
