Key Coded Snowmen

Kindergartner Markus Southward shares his excitement, "It was fun making my own special snowman!"   Paraprofessional Rebecca Boss explains, "The students created their own snowman using a key.  For example, depending on the favored activity they enjoy in the snow the boots are colored differently: sledding - purple boots, building forts - red boots, throwing snowballs - black boots.  Many other distinguishing factors such as head covering, gloves or mittens, a scarf pattern, button shape, and so on help each child create their unique snowman."   Kindergartner Izzy Slutsky, admiring all the snowmen in the hallway, adds "See how different they all look!"

BHMS Food Expo

Recently the 6th grade students at BHMS had a Food Expo, the culminating activity in their science Unit Challenge. The Unit Challenge asked students to educate their assigned characters, Carl and Mary, about digestion and help them solve their digestion problems. Throughout the unit, students have completed hands-on activities to gain experience and insight into the digestive system, constructed and used models of the digestive system, and developed arguments about appropriate food choices based on evidence and reasoning. They also learned how to optimize solutions following the Engineering Design Process and tied this to the MYP Design Cycle.
