7th Grade Life Science - Cell Mysteries
From Nick Scacco, 7th Grade Life Science Teacher:
7th Grade students were presented with slides from an imaginary accident scene. They were tasked with recording observations and using microscopes to try to determine if the slide contained an animal or plant cell, in order to solve the cell mystery. The focus of this lesson was on noticing overall cell shape, organization, and organelles, as part of their ongoing studies to learn about cells. The students also learned how to use the different powers on the microscopes, as well as the right way to safely carry a microscope.
What story will you tell your grandchildren about the Great Pandemic of 2020?
In this year like no other, here's a story from Dr. Grauer that celebrates past and present Thanksgivings.
What can you do to help teens get through the pandemic and improve their mental health? There is a very simple solution, with a lot of research to back it up.
For the 4th year, Grauer students participated in the High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM), where students work in teams of four to solve a problem of real-world mathematical significance, and then explain their methods and results in a paper which is submitted to judges for evaluation.
The Grauer School Surf Team organized a friendly competition, with pairs of students competing in shortboard, longboard, and finless divisions, earning points for their teams based on their placement at the end of each heat.
8th Grade English students have been reading "Lord of the Flies". They've been paying close attention to character development throughout the novel, writing down quotes and observations about assigned characters, which they used to sketch pictures of the main characters.
