Students Complete Children’s Book for Science Project

Students in Mrs. Symmat’s sixth grade science class recently completed children’s books describing the rock cycle.  They were challenged with choosing a genre or style, nonfiction/informational or fiction.  In each case students applied what they have learned to create a story that would keep younger students entertained while describing the transition in geological time among the three main rock types:   sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous.  Many of our elementary science teachers welcomed the middle school students to read their projects to the class.  This was a great opportunity for mentoring in inter-grade activity that promotes student engagement!  Great job, Tigers!
