Mrs. Daniel’s fourth grade students at WDE observed the parts of a flower by dissecting tiger lilies. First, they separated the sepal to discover the protection it provides for the stamen and pistil. Then, they extracted pollen on their fingers from the stamen supporting the concept of pollination. Finally, they located the pistil of the flower in order to understand fertilization.

Paxton's 7th and 8th grade technology students have been learning a lot about coding so far this year. In their class, where they are in the ICT Essentials program, students are learning how to edit existing algorithms and create their own. To put the concept into a new perspective for the students, Miss McMillan's class completed an activity in which they used block segments to create their own small obstacle course for their lego figure to go through. The students had to write out an algorithm that others could easily follow in order to complete the obstacle course. They students did an excellent job with this activity and were very creative in the process. Way to be EPIC, Bobcats!
