Cindy Schumacher's first graders were very excited as they did some science experiments using dry ice.  They learned that dry ice really isn't ice at all.  It doesn't melt.  It is the frozen form of the gas  carbon dioxide.  Carbon dioxide can either be in its gaseous form or it can become a solid when it is frozen (dry ice).   When it begins to disappear it's because it has turned back into a gas.  The experiments included making a quarter scream and a spoon sing.  They also made fog coming out of a tall glass.  After adding Dawn detergent to that, bubbles started pouring out. One of their favorite activities was when a tiny bit of dry ice was put in a film canister and some water was added.  The lid of the film canister popped off very quickly and went really far.  The children enjoyed these experiments and look forward to many more fun science activities.

 Do you know who celebrated his birthday on September 26th? Prairie Elementary first graders in Cindy Schumacher's class do!  They celebrated John Chapman's birthday by making applesauce in their classroom.  The more common name of this special folk hero is Johnny Appleseed.  They  learned that many of the stories about Johnny Appleseed were exaggerated over the years which made his story a "tall tale."  The first graders enjoyed their yummy applesauce and really enjoyed the wonderful fall smell of apples cooking in their classroom.   Click on the photo for a larger view.

Alea and Eric Wassmuth were the big winners at Summit Academy’s Mystery Night Saturday, Oct. 6 at Greencreek. Click on the photo for a larger view.
