It’s SnOw Cold!
On Friday Feb. 28, E. H. Miller students experienced an Arctic Extravaganza. The event was organized by one of the teacher collaboration groups at EHM called “The Beach Bees.” Linda Becker, Tammy Heath, Cathy Campbell and Camille Falconer wanted to compliment the current monthly “UNIQUE” learning system curriculum in the study of geography and science.
Unit 21 in the Unique learning system included the study of climate and temperature. Students learned to understand landforms and the differences in climate and vegetation. The four teachers created a whole day of immersion activities so students could kinesthetically experience all things related to arctic weather. Experience stations included: a snow station, snowball throwing, ski and snowboards, ice skating (simulated with wax paper on feet), mitten match, dress up winter clothing, sledding, ice fishing, winter art, and a reading igloo made with donated milk jugs from Dunkin' Donuts!
