Transformation and Legacy Exhibitions

Exhibitions are on the agenda for next week. It's the third round of the year. This round, the kids are collaborating on their lessons, so there will be seven instead of fourteen. 

Here is the schedule, including topics. The kids designed projects around the theme of Transformation.

Monday, April 27, 9:00-9:30
Elizabeth & Lee are teaching mealworm & beetle lessons to Susan's 1-2 class.

Monday, April 27, 10:30-11:00
Trent & Isobel are designing, planting, and stocking an SK butterfly garden.

Tuesday, April 28, 8:00-8:30
Matthew & Mike wrote a paper on Ovid's Metamorphoses and are teaching a lesson on creation myths.

Wednesday, April 29, 10:30-11:00
Jianmarco is building a tree made of cardboard & candy bars (the transformation of a tree into consumables and back again); Kaeli is building a GSR sensor to measure mood changes as a response to music.

Thursday, April 30, 8:00-8:30
Nico & Margaret are preparing a slideshow on the formation of planets and teaching a lesson on gravity.

Thursday, April 30, 9:30-10:00
Maya & Nik are doing a comparative study of the recent transformations of Dubai (expansion) and Detroit (regression).

Thursday, April 30, 3:45-4:15
Aristea & Karenna are making eight pots in the style of four different cultures.

Come if you can. Ask any questions you'd like.

Our final round of Exhibitions will engage the theme of Legacy. The eighth graders will be showing off the Legacy Projects they designed and carried out on behalf of the Summers-Knoll community. The seventh graders will be creating individual projects that delve more deeply into any subject that spurred their interest over the previous year or two.
