5th Grade May News

May 04, 2018

May News

    The Marshall Elementary fifth grade students recently presented three quilts to the local S.O.S. Tiffany Bartley and Danielle Armitage from S.O.S. were here to receive them. These class quilts were designed as a Kansas Day activity with Mrs. Teresa Detwiler and Mrs. Judy Dunn. Mrs. Detwiler and Mrs. Dunn took the pieced layouts home, and then they sewed them into quilts. The quilts will be donated to children in need through S.O.S. in Greenwood County.

    The fifth-grade class went to Emporia State University for a field trip. There they were able to watch a planetarium show and see some constellations in the night sky. Students also saw many fossils in the Johnston Geology Museum. It was interesting to see so many collected from Greenwood County!  The Schmidt Museum of Natural History allowed students to see many mounted species of birds and animals. The favorite was a family of opossums.  A tour of the one room school house finished the visit to ESU. Students ate lunch at Soden’s Grove Park and then had fun walking through the David Traylor Zoo.

    As an extension activity, the S.T.E.M. project for May Late Start was the Boston Tea Party Challenge. Students had to design and construct a crate that would keep their tea bag dry for the longest period of time. Many crates were well-designed!

    Mrs. Burden’s class has been busy making container gardens that students will take home, and then they’ll be able to harvest their own green beans and tomatoes over the summer.
